Description

Can phonological processes suppress sufficiently similar phonetic processes within a language? The case of long-distance vowel-to-vowel assimilation in Tatar and Hungarian is examined to determine if the direction of vowel-to-vowel coarticulation is influenced by vowel harmony or if it is determined solely by the placement of stress.
