A vowel hiatus context is resolved by vowel coalescence, vowel elision, glide
formation, or glide insertion. These are all onset-driven phenomena. The formal
speech form, which may show a vowel hiatus, is derived by IO-correspondence. A
vowel hiatus is eliminated by deletion of a V in a V+V sequence or by obligatory
glide formation of the first vowel. On the other hand, the casual speech form,
where vowel coalescence, optional glide formation and glide insertion occur, is
derived by OO-correspondence. The difference between the formal speech form and
the casual speech form is the constraint ranking between Onset and other constraints.
