The present study aims to approach soft ‘g’, a highly disputable sound in Turkish phonetics and phonology, from a multidimensional perspective by (i) analysing its historical development, (ii) investigating its distribution in a dictionary of Modern Turkish, and (iii) studying its acoustic realization. In the Ottoman script soft ‘g’ was represented with two letters: , pronounced [ɣ], was used in the context of preceding back vowels Vback_(Vback, C); , pronounced [j], was used in the context of…

The development of the apostrophe with proper names in Turkish
Abstract In modern Turkish, the apostrophe is used to separate proper names from inflectional endings (İzmir’de ‘in İzmir’). This is not the case with inflected common nouns (şehirde ‘in the city’).
Exceptionality and derived environment effects: a comparison of Korean and Turkish
TLDR
It is shown that Korean heteromorphemic sequences that undergo palatalisation are underattested in the lexicon, indicating that MDEEs are not a unitary phenomenon, highlighting the need to examine these patterns in closer quantitative detail.
Phonetic complexity and stuttering in Turkish-speaking children who stutter
TLDR
Investigation of the relationship between stuttering and phonetic complexity for words spoken by Turkish children who stutter revealed that the mean rank of unbound content words differed significantly from the meanRank of un bound function words and that stuttering frequency for un bound content words was significantly higher than for unbound function words.

The phonetic motivation for phonological stop assibilation
This article examines the motivation for phonological stop assibilations, e.g. /t/ is realized as [ts], [s] or [t∫] before /i/, from the phonetic perspective. Hall & Hamann (2006) posit the following

TLDR
This work introduces a new approach to syllable representation, the CV-tier; which defines functional positions within the syllable, and constitutes the first full-scale phonological justification for theCV-tier.

TLDR
The results of an articulatory investigation of the supraglottal correlates of linguistic prominence in English, and a proposal of a unified description of linguistic stress are reported, show that stress affects the articulation of nonsonority distinctions such as backness in vowels and point of articulation in consonants.

The ultimate task of phonology is to discover the causes of the behavior of speech sounds. To do this phonologists must refer to the way speech is created and used by humans, including how it is
