A Probabilistic Model of Phonological Relationships from Contrast to Allophony.
TLDR
We propose a new model of phonological relationships based on a probabilistic account of the notion of predictability of distribution, the PPRM. Expand

A typology of intermediate phonological relationships
Abstract This paper presents an overview of phonological relationships that are “intermediate” between contrast and allophony. As has been observed for many years, such intermediate relationshipsExpand

The role of predictability in shaping phonological patterns
TLDR
We argue that predictability-associated enhancement and reduction effects are based on predictability at the level of meaning-bearing units (such as words) rather than at sublexical levels and present preliminary typological evidence in support of this view. Expand

Language specificity in the perception of voiceless sibilant fricatives in Japanese and English: implications for cross-language differences in speech-sound development.
Both English and Japanese have two voiceless sibilant fricatives, an anterior fricative /s/ contrasting with a more posterior fricative /∫/. When children acquire sibilant fricatives, EnglishExpand

The influence of preceding consonant on perceptual epenthesis in Japanese
TLDR
This paper investigates the extent to which perceptual epenthesis in Japanese is influenced by the quality of the preceding consonant and constrained by native phonotactic patterns. Expand

Defining Phonological Rules over Lexical Neighbourhoods: Evidence from Canadian Raising
Recent years have seen a heightened interest in incorporating a wide range of nonphonological factors, including phonetic, morphological, lexical, syntactic, social, and usage factors, intoExpand

EFFECTS OF PREDICTABILITY OF DISTRIBUTION ON WITHIN-LANGUAGE PERCEPTION
The phonological relationship that holds between two sounds in a language is known to affect perception, with members of a pair of sounds that are contrastive being perceived as more distinct fromExpand

Phonological Relationships: Beyond Contrast and Allophony
In the standard view of phonology, there are two basic paradigmatic relationships between phonological segments: contrast and allophony (see, e.g., Steriade 2007). Two segments are assumed to beExpand
