Title:Consonantal Correspondence
Authors:Rachel Walker
Abstract:Consonantal Correspondence

Rachel Walker


This paper examines patterns of voicing agreement between consonants at

a distance. I argue that the agreement stems from a correspondence

relation between similar consonants in the output, a relation with

foundation in mechanisms of production processing. The occurrence of

long distance voicing interactions is predicted under this approach.

The account also brings explanation to an observed similarity effect

whereby the agreement preferentially targets pairs of near-identical

(or identical) consonants.

This paper will appear in the Proceedings of the Workshop on the Lexicon

in Phonetics and Phonology, Papers in Experimental and Theoretical

Linguistics, Vol. 6, University of Alberta.
