Rules and analogy in Russian loanword adaptation and novel verb formation
Not just Place:
b i (41/54)
p a (36/57)
When there are no neighbors, coronals are always followed by -i
-i is the default
-a is the default
If we know
Do we need to know
Previously sharing just the final C was not enough to be considered neighbors
Local dependencies are stronger
Non-local dependencies do exist
Defining attributes of a DMM default are dissociable (cf. Kapatsinski 2005)
