Italian alternations like "vád-o/ and-iámo" (*vad-iámo) "I go/ we go", "vínc-ere/ vín-to/ vìnc-it-óre" "to win/ won/ winner" instantiate consistency of metrical properties over surface forms. This article argues that derivational means such as "cyclicity" are highly ineffective in accounting for these phenomena, which rather support a fully parallel model of grammar, based exclusively on surface forms with no Underlying Representation.
