OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY The focus of this paper is on a set of phonological processes affecting words and morphemes in Leti, a language spoken on the island of Leti off the coast of Timor. The
Phonological Metathesis in Persian: Synchronic, Diachronic, and the Optimality Theory
Metathesis as a phonological phenomenon in order to reverse segments has been focus of many studies. Metathesis according to the range of application can be sporadic or regular. It links synchronic

Syllabically conditioned coalescence and deletion in Zoque: an optimality-theoretic approach
This article analyzes consonant coalescence (e.g. |yp| → [p y ]) and consonant deletion in the Mixe-Zoque language Zoque spoken in southern Mexico. These processes will be argued to function as
Metathesis in Faroese and Lithuanian: from speech perception to Optimality Theory
Synchronic alternations involving similar types of consonant/consonant metathesis are examined in Faroese and Lithuanian from both formal and functional perspectives. It is argued that by taking into
Position and stress as factors in long-distance consonant metathesis
Abstract Long-distance consonant metathesis is less common than the metathesis of adjacent segments but is shown to occur in multiple languages (e.g. Māori kāheru ∼ $\sim$ kārehu ‘spade’) As words
Where r you going? A typology of long-distance metathesis of liquids
This paper offers a typological analysis of the diachronic phenomena of long-distance metathesis of liquids that thrive in the history of several Romance languages. In particular, it explores
Non-moraic geminates in Leti
The representation of geminate consonants remains a controversial topic in phonological theory. In a skeletal theoretic approach, for example, a geminate is represented as bipositional: a single root
PREDICTING METATHESIS : THE AMBIGUITY / ATTESTATION MODEL
This paper addresses three important observations relating to cross-linguistic patterns of metathesis. First, the direction of change in metathesis can differ from language to language such that a

Introduction One of the major concerns of laboratory phonology is that of determining the nature of the transition between discrete phonological structure (conventionally, “phonology”) and its

TLDR
It is argued that the most insightful analysis does not build these complexities into the rules of epenthesis, but rather they are the byproduct of competing UG representational constraints.
