Elision of Spanish Intervocalic /y/: Toward a Theoretical Account.
Lipski, John M.
Hispania, v73 n3 p797-804 Sep 1990
Explores data regarding the elision and epenthesis of the Spanish intervocalic /y/ and the underspecification of Spanish vowels and semivowels. Results lead to the proposal that such elision results from the Obligatory Contour Principle, operating on an autosegmental tier defining front vowels and /y/. (56 references) (CB)
