Vowel Prosthesis in Romance

Rodney Sampson (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This category of vowel prosthesis postdates I‐prosthesis and operated on rhotic‐initial words. Its early development is examined closely, and its geographical diffusion and likely causation are investigated. The problematic case of Southern Italian is explored in detail. The later, varied fortunes of A‐prosthesis across Romance are traced, analysed, and assessed from a comparative viewpoint.

Keywords:   A‐prosthesis evolution, A‐prosthesis origins, A‐prosthesis and geographical incidence, A‐prosthesis causation, A‐prosthesis actualization, A‐prosthesis and South Italian, A‐prosthesis and Aromanian
