Propose two analyses for given data: an abstract analysis, with abstract underlying segments and a concrete analysis with exception features.
[sen't-amos] we sit / ['sjent-o] I sit
[kon't-amos] we count / ['kwent-o] I count
[ben'd-amos] we sell / ['bend-o] I sell
[mon'tamos] we mount / ['mont-o] I mount
[alje'n-amos] we alienate / [a'ljen-o]I alienate
[frekwen't-amos] we frequent / [fre'kwent-o] I frequent
So far I have these things:
surface alteration / underlying form
non-alternation [e] or [o] / [e] or [o]
non-alternation [je] or [we] / [je] or [we]
[e] or [o] alternating with [je] or [we]/ ?
we have these alternations under the stress situation.
Now I have a question are these analyses correct? what are abstract underlying segments? how about concrete analysis with exception features?
