The New Stability of Unstable "-e" in French.
Walker, Douglas C.
Journal of French Language Studies, v6 n2 p211-29 Sep 1996
Discusses the new stability of the "schwa," extending consideration to the lexicalized conditioning of the stability as indicated in four contemporary pronunciation dictionaries of Standard French. Points out that this stability provides evidence for a reanalysis of "schwa" and explores implications of the analysis for the distinction between lexical and post-lexical rules.
