Post subject: Free Variation in English Phonology
Reply with quote

Hello all

I'm wondering if anyone knows of a good resource listing all the known "optional rules" in English phonotactics.

A few I am aware of so far:

// Diphthonɡization
The phoneme // may be realized as [ɛə] when it proceeds /n/.

Glottalization of Voiceless Stops in Word-Final Position
The phonemes /p, t, k/ may be pronounced [pˀ, tˀ, kˀ] in word-final position.

Any leads would be much appreciated! Cool
