Vowel Prosthesis in Romance

Rodney Sampson (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

U‐prosthesis occurred in the later Middle Ages following a special type of syncope. The structural circumstances surrounding its rise are explored in detail, and the geographical incidence and possible causation of the development are examined. Differences in the treatment of clitics and lexical forms are analysed. More recent changes in U‐prosthesis are finally considered in a comparative perspective.

Keywords:   U‐prosthesis evolution, U‐prosthesis origins, U‐prosthesis and syncope, U‐prosthesis and geographical incidence, U‐prosthesis actualization, U‐prosthesis causation, U‐prosthesis and proclitics, U‐prosthesis and northern France
