Abstract:A much reworked version of an older paper by the same name (ROA 188-0497). [Note: does not supersede that paper; they are distinct in several ways.] This paper argues that given a theory of phonology with an explicit functional phonetic basis, certain classes of \'transparency\' to feature spreading disappear. (That is, they are seen as artifacts of traditional formal theories.) The point is demonstrated for consonantal transparency in vowel harmony, focusing on Turkish.
