Korean "Tense" Consonants as Geminates.
Kansas Working Papers in Linguistics, v20 p25-38 1995
This paper argues that Korean "tense" consonants are geminates based upon phonetic as well as phonological evidence. In section 2, the phonetic realization of tense consonants is discussed and compared with the phonetic realization of plain consonants. Section 3 looks at the representation of Korean tense consonants as single segments. Section 4 focuses on the representation of Korean tense consonants as geminates and show that they are more appropriately represented as geminates than as single segments. In section 5, the phonetic realization and phonological representation of Korean tense consonants are summarized. Contains 16 references. (JL)
