Prosodic Hierarchy-Based Templates 47 (12)—which optimize copying as much of the Base as possible while not exceeding a single open syllable.

In their approach, the reduplicative morpheme is semantically identical to its Base. Morphological and, to a lesser extent, phonological identity, follow from this. While Inkelas and Zoll (2005) observe that the target shapes for reduplicative truncation match the shapes found for other processes of truncation, they do not formalize a theory of possible output shapes. The concern of their theory is rather to account for matches and mismatches in the respective phonologies of the reduplicative morpheme and its Base.

They require not only Words but also (prosodic) morphemes which are categorized as Stems to be minimally Foot-sized, as both Words and Stems are parsed into a Prosodic Word and, by Headedness, must contain a proper stress Foot.
