Plosive Epenthesis in English E-mail this message to a friend
It is well known that English exhibits the epenthesis of a fortis plosive in nasal+fortis fricative clusters (eg prince [prins]). Some of the details of this phenomenon are not clear (to me).
If you are a native speaker of English and can afford to spend about five minutes on helping me with this, please visit http://seas3.elte.hu/epenthesis/ and give your grammaticality judgements on about 50 words.
Thank you very much in advance!
