In this paper we present a means of defin- ing morphonological phenomena in an in- heritance based lexicon. We make use of the theory behind the formal language MOLUSC, in which morphological alterna- tions were defined as mappings between se- quences of tree-structured syllables. We discuss how the alternations can be defined in the inheritance-based lexical representa- tion language DATR, and how the phono- logical aspects can be built upon to bring it closer to an integrated lexicon with rep- resentations which can be used by both the morphology and phonology of a language.
