On the representation of coronals and velars across theories

Daniel Huber

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to discuss and compare the representations of coronal and velar consonants in some phonological theories. The major aim is to argue against the mainstream view that coronals are phonologically placeless (see Paradis-Prunet 1991) by presenting a number of approaches to show that there is actually no universal agreement that coronals universally lack a place of articulation. This issue is, of course, related to a major claim according to which it is velars that are placeless.
