We argue that this pattern follows from the interaction of two independently-motivated syntax-prosody mapping principles: SERIALIZE, which forces adjacent verbs in SVCs to form a single prosodic word, and KINYALOLO's constraint, which militates against redundant inflectional morphology within the prosodic word. Our view is contrasted with that of Rolle (2019), who proposes an abandonment of serial morphological derivations, and that syntactic structures are morphologized and prosodified in parallel.</p>
