For many years, the voicing approach of Polish has been on the heart of a heated theoretical debate pertaining to laryngeal phonology because it incorporates a variety of phenomena that represent the middle of this debate, resembling ultimate Obstruent Devoicing, Regressive Voice Assimilation, and revolutionary Voice Assimilation. As examine into laryngeal phonology progresses on a variety of fronts, it turns into extra noticeable that a huge section of the phenomena in query have phonetic or implementational conditioning, therefore restricting the position of phonology even extra. The version provided here's one within which phonology, phonetic interpretation, and phonetics locate their respective houses. ironically, through keeping apart those 3 degrees of description, we want to combine the disparate threads of recent study of sound styles into one sound process.

Example text

This way, phonological representations are fully interpretable at any stage of the derivation and there is no need for a systematic phonetic representation (Harris 1990, 1994; Harris and Lindsey 1993; Kaye, Lowenstamm and Vergnaud 1990). For example, if the Polish phonological computation lost the processes of delaryngealization and L-spreading, illustrated in (3) above, then the lexical phonological representations would still be pronounceable, except that the phonetic facts would be different.

Thus, the orchestration of voicing is possible even if we are dealing with a mixture of parameter settings of which some are voice inhibiting and others are voice conducive. However, the same setting may produce different results depending on the type of segment involved, that is, whether it is a vowel, a sonorant consonant or an obstruent. All these facts militate against using degrees of voicing as contrastive phonetic categories. Returning to the graph in (4), and the way in which the phonetic categories are directly related to phonological marking, we seem to observe an almost biunique relation between the three phonetically defined contrastive values along the VOT continuum corresponding directly to three possible representations of stops in Laryngeal Realism, where full voicing in the signal corresponds to the presence of {L}, aspiration relates to {H}, and voiceless unaspirated objects are typically neutral.

Instead, we will demonstrate that one of the dialect groups of Polish, the Cracow-Poznań dialect, has the representation and interpretation of the laryngeal system similar to Dutch. Below, we signal some of the consequences of Laryngeal Relativism. Most of them will be given an explanation in the following chapter. 5 Some consequences of Laryngeal Relativism Note that the systems proposed for Slavic and Romance languages (6a), and Dutch (6d) are phonetically speaking the same while being phonologically opposite.
