In doing so I intend to criticize existing models of Word and Paradigm morphology. This will provide guidance in the modification of Word and Paradigm methodology. Following this I will illustrate that the Revised Word and Paradigm model to be developed can do the work of another model of nonconcatenative morphology, Autosegmental Morphology. I will go on to show that there are good reasons for adopting the Word and Paradigm morphological approach.
