This paper presents a language for the description of morphological alternations which is based on sylla- ble structure. The justification for such an approach is discussed with reference to examples fi'om a va- riety of languages and the approach is compared to Koskenniemi's two-level account of morphonoIogy. Keywords: morphology, phonology, syllables.
