Phonological versus Morphological Rules: On German Umlaut and Ablaut.
Wiese, Richard
Journal of Linguistics, v32 n1 p113-35 Mar 1996
Addresses the relationship between phonology and morphology, using the vowel alternations of Standard German Umlaut and Ablaut as relevant examples. The article analyzes Umlaut as a completely unified process of vowel fronting, whereas it argues that Ablaut is synchronically a totally unpredictable vowel change found in the paradigms of strong verbs.
