HUL242:: Tutorial-5 September 9th-13th 1. Here are some examples from Dutch, which shows words with the diminutive. Is there any predictability in the pattern that you see in these words? What is the phonological process that you can observe in these words? Daan Daantje little Daan duin duintje little dune been beentje little leg raam raampje little window oom oompje little uncle pluim pluimpje little feather koning koningkje little king lezing lezingkje little reading 2. In English not all consonant clusters appear in word-initial clusters after /s/ E.g. spin is possible, but others are not. List those consonants that can occur using an example. Using this list, is it possible to group them into classes ? Now try this with three member clusters e.g. /s/ followed by two consonants ? Do these consonants also constitute a class(es) ? Can you extend this idea to explain how the creation of nonce words (e.g. words like ‘wug’) is acceptable but not ‘zhlet’ ?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
