/l/-Palatalization in Complex Onsets
|Submitter Email:||click here to access email|
Dear List Members,
A colleague and I are working on the palatalization of
onsets, i.e. in the absence of a following palatal /i/ or /j/, a process
that took place in Italian and various other dialects of Romance languages.
(1) lat. PLATEAM > it. piazza
(2) germ. BLANK > it. bianco
(3) lat. CLAVEM > it. chiave
(4) lat. GLACIEM > it. ghiaccio
(5) lat. FLOREM > it. fiore
We would like to know whether
1. Anyone knows of any phonetic studies that have been conducted on this
subject, since we have been unable to locate one.
2. Anyone has encountered this phenomenon in a non-Romance language.
If there are enough responses, we will post a summary to the List.
Thanks in advance for your answers!
