On a more theoretical level, this conclusion shows that phonetic and phonemic processes cannot be treated indiscriminately and diachronic rules have an apart status. In discussing Lightner's rule I showed that the inclusion of diachronic rules in a synchronic grammar can lead to contradictions. Ruhlen's work and his concluding remarks must be seen as a turning point. After the visionary years of transformational generative grammar, phonological studies have come (or perhaps returned) to the use of a mature method.
Since these are often the manifestations of on-going linguistic changes, they have a rightful and, indeed, important place in the phonology of a language. For Chomsky, on the other hand, the realizations discussed above should be accounted for with two rules. i. ii. V → nasalized / Nasal + Consonant Nasal → Ø / Lax Vowel — unvoiced stop (1964: 82). Rule i. can be temporarily accepted (see p. 30 for necessary restrictions) but rule ii. raises two grave questions. First as to the justification of the process.
4 Portuguese word-final nasal vowels Let us return now to Portuguese word-final nasal vowels. 2, at the possibility of their having been brought about by something other than the fall of word-final NC's. Let us pursue this thought further. Through the fall of Lat. L. -e of the accusative singular of third declension nouns and the -t of the third person plural of all verbs, a number of NC's became word-final. The vowel preceding these consonants became nasalized, but the consonant continued to be written and pronounced.
