Thus, prefixes are included in the wordgame, which is an indication that not the foot but the next higher prosodic domain, the prosodic word (cf. Nespor and Vogel 1986), is the domain of this game. The section of the foot that is moved in this game cannot be characterised as 'the final syllable' because that does not over all the cases in (42).
