The Ins and Outs of Paragoge and Apocope in Japanese English Interphonology.
Ross, Steven
Second Language Research, v10 n1 p1-24 Feb 1994
Examined two phenomena in the acquisition of second-language syllable structure among Japanese students of English as a foreign language: (1) a preference for open syllables, as manifest in paragoge; and (2) a developmental process of final segment apocopation. Results suggest that paragogic epenthesis is conditioned by a syllable structure constraint based on the students' first language. (MDM)
