Message 2: Exceptionless Phonological Opacity

Subject: Exceptionless Phonological Opacity

I'm doing research on phonological opacity (of the type seen in Polish
where /o/ raising to [u] before voiced codas is rendered opaque by
obstruent devoicing), but most of the cases I've come across seem to have
lexical exceptions. If anyone knows of any languages with phonological
opacity with NO lexical exceptions, I would greatly appreciate being
pointed in the right direction. I'll post a summary of the resulting
comments. 

Thanks!
