I'm not sure what you're asking.
I'm sorry. I keep forgetting to double check my posts to make sure I'm making sense.
When spanick was explaining how to write the empathetic rule (Ø → V / C ____ C), he said it was -- the rule -- only possible if the word was prefixed to another. Is it possible to have both rules present, so the words do not always have to be attached to each other? Because in this case, I wouldn't want the words to always
be prefixed/attached to one another. So I was curious if this could be done?
In contrast to the first rule, which specifies that the consonants must be word-initial. If we didn't have that specification, then a word like renzin would be split into *renVzin because the structure is CVCCVC.
So the first rule is specifying consonants must
be word-initial, but the second rule must come first?
Those are both forms of epenthesis. The consonant involved doesn't have to be a glide; common epenthetic consonants include [h] (a fricative) and [ʔ] (a stop).
Oh! I tell her if she doesn't already know.
*she loves vowels I guess.*
