Glide and Glottal Stop Insertion in Slavic Languages: A DOT Analysis
Article PDF (229.53 KB)
Abstract

This article investigates glide and glottal stop insertion in Bulgarian, Slovak (two dialects), Polish (two dialects), and Czech. It is argued that Optimality Theory should be modified by introducing derivational levels and that OT auxiliary theories, in particular, output-output theory, MAX (Feature) theory, and sympathy theory, should be rejected.
