Title: Assimilation to /r/ in English initial consonant clusters
Author: Herbert Frederic W. Stahlke

Institution: Ball State University
Linguistic Field: Phonology
Abstract: The recent Bulley-Davidson discussion of English initial consonant clusters (ET80, ET81, ET83) brings attention to the need for phonetic rigor and some phonological understanding when describing the sounds and sound patterns of English. Three topics the two writers deal with would benefit from such rigor: /tr/ and /dr/ clusters, the status and function of /j/ in initial clusters before /u/, and the role of syllable structure in the description of consonant clusters.
