Liquid Assimilation in Havana Spanish.
There has been a consensus among linguists that laryngeal and superlaryngeal nodes are located under the root node and place node is under the superlaryngeal node. However, there is very little consensus on where manner of articulation features belong. A phonological analysis of the spreading and delinking process occurring in the educated Spanish of Havana (Cuba) suggests that: (1) the [continuant] feature should be located under the superlaryngeal node; (2) [continuant] and place features form a natural class node (oral cavity); and (3) manner features and place features do operate together in the delinking and spreading operations.
