degrhde/dlrgrudhtion and tklegruphkei~grophy, which were used to illustrate that stress alternations are conditioned by morphology. This section will discuss how this is handled in the program. The task is divided into two questions: (I) how to parse the word into morphemes, and (2) how to integrate the morphological parse into the rest of stress assignment procedure discussed above. ~" N s-d - used to I~ idlm"aL I sm -,ill am mm du~ differeeczs us just~'=d.
