Example text

One aspect of this tendency is that allomorphic variation within paradigms is minimized" (1973, 559). Although Kiparsky and King could be seen as having evolved similar positions regarding the motivating factors of rule reordering, a very interesting difference in emphasis remained. Kiparsky continued to claim that "no unequivocal evidence exists for considering minimization of allomorphy as a separate motivating factor in linguistic change. Actually attested cases of leveling can usually with some plausibility be represented as a formal simplification, though this in some cases involves nontrivial and perhaps false assumptions about the form of grammars.

To this end, it would obviously be a great advantage to have a phonetically based theory of natural change. Although such a model has yet to be fully articulated, as we have seen, I will try to show that the judicious application of certain guiding principles can stand us in good stead. J Intrinsic order is always correlative with historical order and appeals to considerations which are external to the language or dialect under investigation are unnecessary unless the relative chronology cannot be determined because specific changes are crucially non-affecting and/or non-affected by other changes.

In other words, the existence of such unattested forms as *aFabidama and *yamagafa is doubtful at best. Moreover, given the existence of a form such as /yamagaFa/ 'mountain river', which is conjectured to stem from *yama + n + kaFa (> *yama + rjgaFa > /yama + gaFa/), the question arises as to why it too was not affected by dissimilation in Old Japanese since this was supposedly a persistent rule. In a certain sense, it may be said that the last case is typical of all previous attempts to argue for the reality of rule persistence, since they, too, have been uncompelling and open to alternative analyses.
