Dissimilation as Deletion in Chukchi.
Odden, David
A nonlinear approach to phonology that is more constrained than linear theory is proposed. The theory disallows rules of feature changing, resulting in a stronger, more consistent, and more interesting theory. Specifically, it is suggested, and tested with data from Chukchi, that dissimilations and other nonassimilatory rules are rules of feature deletion, and that use of the nonlinear approach allows the formal theory of rules to be more tightly constrained.
