I'm looking for languages, in which alienable and inalienable possession
is marked by the same set (or at least - phonologically similar)
exponents, yet do these exponents undergo different phonological
processes in alienable vs. inalienable possession.
In Ojibwe, for example, vowel hiatus is resolved via consonant
epenthesis in alienable possession, but via deletion in inalienable
If anyone knows of more languages of this type, I would be grateful for
references and comments.
