Synchronic variation and sound change in Romance languages: a corpus-based study of lenition phenomena in Romanian and Spanish

Abstract : Many diachronic phonological changes mirror synchronic phonetic variations, and as J. Ohala proposed, some historical processes can be “duplicated” in laboratory conditions through acoustic and perceptual experiments. We compare two lenition phenomena in Romanian and Spanish through corpus-based analyses, both of which are linked to phonological changes from Latin to modern Romance languages.
