Summary:   BELOW IS A SUMMARY OF THE RESPONSES TO MY REQUEST FOR INFORMATION ABOUT (REGRESSIVE) STOP NASALIZATION (LINGUIST 14.1253).

THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO ANSWERED MY REQUEST.

STOP NASALIZATION IS FOUND IN THE SOUTHERMOST DIALECT OF FAROESE (THE LANGUAGE OF THE FAROE ISLANDS), THE DIALECT OF THE ISLAND OF SUDUROY. WHEREAS ELSWHERE IN THE FAROESE AREA YOU WILL FIND, FOR EXAMPLE, REGNA /REGNA/ 'TO RAIN', VOGNUR /VOGNUR/ 'WAGON', IN THE DIALEECT OF SUDUROY THIS OCCURS AS /RENNA/, /VONNUR/. ''N'' SYMBOLIZES THE NASAL STOP.
(JOHNNY THOMSEN)

REGRESSIVE (ANTICIPATORY) ASSIMILATION OCCURS IN NORWEGIAN (E.G. _SOGNE FJORD_ WITH ENGMA, I.E. THE VELAR NASAL, FOR THE _G_) AND IN GERMAN (E.G. IN THE WOMAN'S NAME _AGNES_ WITH ENGMA FOR THE _G_).
(THEO VENNEMANN)

ANCIENT GREEK HAD STOP NASALIZATION AS DESCRIBED BY W. SYDNEY ALLEN IN HIS VOX GRAECA (PP. 35 FF.).
