Phonology and one is Syntax

Catalan (Italic, Indo-European — Spain)


Catalan is an Italic language spoken in Spain. Use the steps for phonemic analysis to determine the phonemic status of the following Catalan consonants.[1] List your environments. Compare [b] and [β], [d̪] and [ð], and [ɡ] and [ɣ]. Note that phonemic processes can apply across word boundaries. Therefore, you can ignore word boundaries when writing your environments.  Write a prose rule, and then attempt to write a formal rule using [±] features. You will be judged on the accuracy of your prose rule. I will use your attempt at a prose rule to determine where you stand with the course material.
