Writing the rules for the Greek problem in autosegmental format For this exercise we will just use data set A, and ignore the deletion rule in B. The masculine accusative form of the article/pronoun has the lexical representation /ton/. The nasal consonant assimilates in place to the initial stop of the following word, which becomes voiced when the preceding consonant is voiced. If the following word begins with a consonant cluster, the voicing change can affect both consonants in the cluster. I wrote two rules: (1) “nasals take the place of the following stop.” (2) voiceless consonant –> voiced / voiced cons. ____ For example, 6(c) ‘we know him’ / ton ksErumE / assimilation toN ksErumE voicing (twice) toN gzErumE [toN gzErumE] Decide which version of each rule is correct, and be ready to vote. The autosegmental rule may not be identical to the linear rule above. The following descriptions give the features on the left (1st sound) first, from top to bottom, then the features on the right (2nd sound), from top to bottom. Rule 1.
