In Yakovlev's morphological theory, the so-called prefix license simply denotes the least metrically prominent of three morphological classes: the root syllables of content words or morphemes (nouns, adjectives, certain suffixes, and so on) form strong metrical positions; function words or morphemes (articles, prepositions, grammatical inflections, and so on) form weak metrical positions; and verbal prefixes and ne form weak metrical positions or no position at all. The rejection of points of origin and the rejection of points of culmination in this new wave of research effectively accomplish the same essential task: to put flesh on old bones, or (to reverse the metaphor) to strip away the layers of mediation that pre-interpret a culturally remote literary tradition.
