Title: Neutralization and anti-homophony in Korean

Institution: San José State University
Linguistic Field: Phonology
Subject Language: Korean
Abstract: Neutralization in Korean involves a large number of oppositions, and affects a significant portion of the lexicon. Nonetheless, it induces remarkably little homophony. These highly divergent facts are argued herein to be related. The present findings suggest a reconsideration of the role that ‘functional load’ (Martinet , Hockett ) plays in patterns of sound change.
