This isn't a dialect question, but I know there are some smart phonologists
on this list who can answer my question. I'm curious if the Maximal Onset
Principle is still considered valid in today's linguistics. I ask this
because sometimes it doesn't seem to be working in speech and I don't know
if another theory has taken its place. (Or maybe there are certain
environments it doesn't work in that I'm unaware of.)
