We present a new mechanism to explain naturally and through a common flavour symmetry the mildly hierarchical neutrino masses with large mixings and the hierarchical Yukawa matrices with small mixing angles. Although this mechanism is not linked to a particular flavour symmertry, it is particularly simple in the framework of a SU(3) flavour symmetry. In this model, we obtain exactly maximal atmospheric mixing, large although not maximal solar mixing and a normal neutrino hierarchy. All neutrino… Expand
