Abstract:

The most comprehensive work on dissimilation (the avoidance or repair of combinations of similar sounds) to date, this book proposes a novel analysis that handles dissimilation as the avoidance of surface correspondence relationships. It draws on recent work in Agreement By Correspondence to show that dissimilation is a natural outcome predicted by the same theory of Surface Correspondence. The theory is developed in more detail than ever before, and its predictions are tested and evaluated through ten in-depth analyses of diverse languages from Quechua to Kinyarwanda, together with a typological survey of over 150 dissimilation patterns drawn from over 130 languages, from Acehnese to Zulu. The book redefines the core of Surface Correspondence theory to a level of formal specificity and theoretical precision surpassing previous work. The book's findings are made more accessible by numerous examples featuring data from 47 languages from around the world.

1. Introduction; 2. The surface correspondence theory; 3. Kinyarwanda: the effects of domain edges, and the adequacy of a single SCorr relation; 4. Sundanese: complementary assimilation and dissimilation; 5. Quechua and Obolo: the role of syllable edges; 6. Chol and Ponapean: complete identity effects; 7. Zulu labial dissimilation: SCTD and the OCP; 8. Segmental blocking effects in dissimilation; 9. Typological survey of dissimilation; 10. Concluding remarks.
