Conflict between the constraints Ons and Hnuc is unavoidable; there are candidate sets in which no candidate satisfies both constraints. ) plentiful’ (Dell & Elmedlaoui 1985: 110). Both Ons and Hnuc agree that the core syllable •a should be formed: it has an onset as well as the best possible nucleus. Similarly, we must have a final syllable tN. But what of the rest of the string? In the ultimate output, we have two monosyllabic choices for the sequence /ul/: a superior nucleus lacking an onset, as in (ul )σ; or an onetted syllable with an inferior nucleus, as in (wL)σ.

With respect to a single constraint such as Fill, HOF works to compare two candidates by examining the list of marks *Fill that each incurs. The Fill-cell marked ‘* *’ for candidate (b) denotes the mark list (*Fill, *Fill). By the very sense of constraint violation, we must have ø Ñ (*C, . . ), meaning that it is better to satisfy a constraint C, earning the empty mark list ø, than to fail it to any degree. When each has an empty mark list for a constraint, two competitors tie on that constraint.

Bottom-Up Constructionism is suited to a state of affairs in which the package of constraints relevant to syllable structure completely and universally dominates the constraint-package pertaining to foot structure: Syll-Form ’ Foot-Form. Tongan shows that this hierarchy is not, in fact, rigidly adhered to. Bimoraic trochaic footing at the end of a word necessarily entails a conflict between syllable and foot constraints in words ending Heavy-Light. 18 We have classified the Tongan situation as an example of the ‘do something only when’ or triggering pattern.
