Ch.14: Local assimilation and constraint interaction by Eric Baković


"A phonological process is called an assimilation if, as a result of its application, two or more segments in a form agree in their value for some phono­logical feature(s) or feature class(es). ... Local assimilations obtain between strictly adjacent segments... The focus of the present chapter is on local assimilation, and in particular on a set of issues that arise in the formal analysis of processes of local assimi­lation within Optimality Theory (Prince & Smolensky 2004)."
