5249 Byte Access

Is it possible for the MCF5249 to perform byte size memory accesses.  On my target board I have a 16 bit wide Static RAM chip, A0 from the 5249 is not connected.  The chip has a Lower Byte and an Upper Byte signal but the only type of corresponding signals on the 5249 I see are for SDRAM
If I can't do byte level memory access then what is the workaround for using string literals, like the line StringCopy (TheCharArray, "Hello World"); and the StringCopy routine copies bytes from one to the other until the terminator charcter is reached?
