This paper provides an overview, based on the MAND database and on additional recordings for Limburgian Panningen, of diminutive formation in Limburgian and focuses on the status of n-assimilation. It is shown that both the presence and the absence of n-assimilaton poses problems both for existing… read more | Article
Expressing syllable weight by moras leads to two problems. First, there are languages, such as Wolof, with long vowels and geminates, which both make a syllable bimoraic, but where only long vowels, but not geminates, count as heavy for stress. Second, there are languages in which closed… read more | Article

Introduction
This paper discusses the Korean adaptation of French word-final coronal plosives. They are adapted, just as the English ones, with or without vowel insertion. In the latter case they are treated as ending in underlying /s/. Replacement of word-final coronal plosives by underlying /s/ is also active… read more | Article
This paper discusses two Latin stress shift cases that are problematic for a metrically-conditioned syncope analysis using Harmonic Serialism. The first case receives a straightforward account by replacing the constraints Max-Pr (no stress removal) and Dep-Pr (no stress assignment) by the… read more | Article
Berns, Janine and Haike Jacobs 2012 A first glance at the role of length in production and perception of diphthongs before Dutch coda lLinguistics in the Netherlands 2012, Elenbaas, Marion and Suzanne Aalberse (eds.), pp. 15–26
Botma, Sebregts & Smakman (2008, 2010, 2012) have shown that in Dutch there is variation in the neutralization of tense and lax vowels before coda l. In this study, we will extend the scope of their investigation by examining the effect of coda l on preceding diphthongs. A pilot production… read more | Article
This paper proposes an OT account of diachronic and synchronic Romance lenition based on the theory of Comparative Markedness. The analysis, contrary to previous analyses, allows for a straightforward description of synchronic allophonic lenition processes where voicing and spirantization take… read more | Article
This paper argues that the notoriously problematic Late Latin stress shift in words with a light penultimate syllable before consonant-liquid clusters cannot be adequately explained by double prosody (an additional mora, projected to the syllable, but not realized by the vowel) which allows a light… read more | Article
