Dear List Members-

I have been unable to locate a reference to an article by Jakobson in
which he discusses languages which use only a small number of their
phonemes for expression of inflectional categories.

Thanks in advance for any leads.

Message 2: Sonorant devoicing

Subject: Sonorant devoicing



Dear list subscribers,
I am currently working on sonorant devoicing in obstruent-sonorant
clusters in French. I was wondering whether anybody could point
me to additional sources of data and/or secondary literature about the
phenomenon. My main sources so far are: Dell 1980, Casagrande 1984, Nyrop
1963, and Delattre.
I will post a summary, if I can gather enough references.
