Example text

This, of course, followed from its abandonment of autonomous phonology in favor of a phonology in which the processes take account of structure at the grammatical level. Generative phonologists claimed that "phonological change may take place in an environment specified by the grammar, no matter whether it be phonological ('phonetic' in terms of generative phonology) or grammatical (surface syntactic)" (Bynon 1977, 112). Thus, as clearly outlined by Kiparsky, "grammars are subject to changes of two kinds: the addition of new rules to them and simplification of them.

Processes that have been 'phonologized', may readjust in certain ways to newly developing changes. This, of course, would have the effect of distorting our perception of relative chronology. There appear to be four ways in which rules might potentially readjust. First, a rule could stop operating or 'disapply', as it were, if its determinant ceased to exist. Second, a rule could 'persist' in the sense that it would reapply to the output of an incoming rule. Third, an emerging rule could be inserted at some point in the phonological component instead of at the end, as is usually the case.

The non-existence of */di:b/, */hund/, and */ta:g/ was claimed to constitute proof of the "psychological reality" of final devoicing in this language. It is clear, however, that Modern German does not have a general rule of finalschwa deletion. One cannot, for instance, pronounce the nominative singular Robe 'raven' as */ra:p/ or the nominative plural Tage 'days' as */ta:k/. The only examples of schwa deletion were in fact from the dative singular, and it is true that final /9/ has been lost in this case.
