E. those involving discrete pieces. As Lieber notes, the relevant distinctions are difficult to make in “pieceless” theories of morphology, a point to which we return below. In the discussion above, we have made reference to (i) the underlying forms of Roots; (ii) the Vocabulary Items, rules that add phonological material to abstract morphemes; & (iii) the Readjustment Rules, morphosyntactically conditioned phonological rules. Both types of rules in (ii) & (iii) may be underspecified with respect to the syntactico-semantic context in which they apply.

In what follows, I intend to show that both predictions (i) and (ii) are fulfilled. Let us start with (i). It takes a moment's reflection to see that the lexicon of natural languages contains designated anaphoric expressions selectively referring to facts. In Italian, for instance, we have (besides the anaphoric epithet “la cosa” discussed above), the demonstrative pronouns “questo” e “ciò”. They can be felicitously used instead of the subject null pronoun in (23)-(24) in order to resume a fact: (29) Ieri è scoppiata una bomba.

Roots and abstract morphemes are combined into larger syntactic objects, which are moved when necessary (Merge, Move). In the simplest case, PF rules linearize the hierarchical structure generated by the syntax, and add phonological material to the abstract morphemes in a process called Vocabulary Insertion. During Vocabulary Insertion, individual Vocabulary Items—rules that pair a phonological exponent with a morphosyntactic context—are consulted, and the most specific rule that can apply to an abstract morpheme applies.
