Abstract: Main theoretical notions used in the field of lexical phonology are exemplified with English language data; where appropriate, similarities & differences with the SPE model are indicated. Essential aspects of the lexical & postlexical modules of phonological rule application are explained & placed within a descriptive framework distinguishing underlying, lexical, & phonetic representations of lexical entries; the concept of sequential modularity in phonology is compared to that of modularity in syntax as advocated in government-binding theory, stressing the presence of an input/output relation between the morphological & phonological rule systems. Subsequently, the pertinence of morphological information in the paradigm of lexical phonology is noted, based on conceptualizations developed in lexical morphology. The distinction between strata (ie, lexical modules) & the application of morphological distribution & boundary principles (eg, stratum ordering & domain hypotheses, & bracket erasure) are discussed in detail. The consequences of bracket erasure are found to include inaccessibility of a word's morphological status at the postlexical stratum & the derivation of N. Chomsky's (1970) principle of lexical integrity. S. Paul.
