Example text

Men kan zieh dit denken na palatale vocaal .... Na velare vocalen echter is zulk een j[ als overgangsklank vreemd. Het is niet in te zien, waarom tussen de a en ^ van raden na syncope van d de tong de ^-stand in zou nemen, die niet tussen die van a en ^ inligt, integendeel een heel andere, - 18 - geheel afwijkende beweging met het voorgedeelte der tong vereist. Welke overgangsklank tussen a en e_ we"! te verwachten is, is niet zo makkelijk a priori te zeggen. Bij a ligt de tong ongeveer in ruststand, en de articulatie van g_ is te weinig nauwkeurig, dan dat de glide tussen die beide distinct zou worden.

Dutch has a set of so-called *heterorganic diphthongs*, which consist of a *long first element*, and a heterorganic »gliding second element*: -j[ after back vowels, -w after front ones. It is, according to Barnouw, the coercion of the former type which has given rise to the introduction of j_ after back vowels after the syncope of d. It becomes a rightful question immediately, of course, why then -w does not show up after front vowels after d-syncope. The answer is that the respective frequencies of the two subclasses of »heterorganic diphthongs* are highly skewed, the former type being much more frequent that the latter.

On the issue of the source of j^ Van Haeringen reiterates his position of 1926. He does the same even more forcefully in a contribution to the recent Van Loey Pestschrift (1975), in an extensive review of Barnouw»s 1942 paper. This sequence of papers, beginning and ending, significantly, with Van Haeringen, comprises half a century of work on intervocalic <1 as such, within more traditional (pre-generative) approaches to the study of language. Outside these papers many contemporary grammars and handbooks of Dutch also contain a brief section on the subject.
