Familiar cases of metathesis involve segments changing places, but metathesis can also operate at the subsegmental level, affecting individual features. I'm specifically interested in metathesis of POA features, like the following examples:
German finster "dark, gloomy" < * θimster (edit: this is doubtful as a case of feature metathesis, see jknappen's comments)
Colloquial Hebrew maʃaz "massage" < masaʒ
- What are some other examples of this process? It's difficult to find data as this type of metathesis seems to be rare and not much studied.
- Are there any studies that deal specifically with POA feature metathesis -- e.g. examining its typology, which features do and don't undergo metathesis under which kinds of circumstances, etc.?
- As a bonus question, are there any attested cases of voicing metathesis (e.g. tab > dap)? I'm aware that this shows up in child language acquisition errors, but beyond that?
