The Laryngeal Class in RcvP and Voice phenomena in Dutch
This article proposes a system for representing phonation distinction in consonants within Radical CV Phonology (RCVP), a dependency-based model that uses unary “features” (called elements). The RCVP model is briefly outlined. The proposal for phonation distinction is compared to traditional binary systems and other unary proposals in the context of Government Phonology. The model is applied to phonation distinctions in Dutch, English and French which has traditionally been claimed to have different analyses. RCVP proposes a more unified analysis that uses the notion of enhancement. This article pays specific attention to voicing phenomena in Dutch (final devoicing, progressive and regressive voice assimilation) to illustrate and motivate certain aspects of the proposed system.
