Message 1: Clarification of Sum: AmEng External Sandhi

From: Mark Mandel <>
Subject: Clarification of Sum: AmEng External Sandhi

On reading the LINGUIST's Web posting
( of my summary of
replies to my query on external sandhi, I discovered that all the
circumflexes (carets) had been lost in transit. They were there when
the message left my keyboard!

I will repeat the two affected sections here, substituting for the
caret a pound sign ("#"), which I hope will reach subscribers:


Ben Brumfield <> pointed out a 
regional example: 

Piedmont Virginia (Pittsylvania County, at least) features the case of
/rajc# yi:r/ 
Ri-Cheer For "Right Here"


Mel Resnick <> pointed me to his 

Resnick, Melvyn C. "The Redundant English Phonemes /c#,j#,s#,z#/." 
 Linguistics 86 (1972): 83-86.

Those symbols in the title are of course in place of the usual 
wedge symbols. 


The deletions must have made Resnick's last comment rather puzzling.

On the other hand, the blanks between brackets in Betty Phillips's
 >	(where [ ] = "esh")
are exactly as I received them from her, although they, too, may
represent something more substantial that vanished en route.
