No account is given for this. The vowel should not drop in this case, because an OCP violation would occur, but in fact it does drop. Let us try to save Borowsky's analysis. Adjacent identical manner and primary place (within a rhyme, under such and such morphological conditions) constitute an OCP violation, unless they have opposite values for stridency, or, in other words, provided they have the same value for stridency. So the OCP holds for the feature [Strident] as well. Note that [±strident] is necessary: churches, lasted.
However, if /r/ has no PLACE, how can the OCP rule out rj ? It cannot. One might think now that an independent constraint rules out rj. If Irl is more sonorous that /l/, and as sonorous as j and w, then sonority requirements will rule out the sequence. This may be checked by resorting to a variety of English where coronal + ju sequences are not disallowed. In RP-English this is the case (tjum, djuik,. ), nonetheless rj is not encountered. But invoking RP-English brings up new problems. The solution Rice has proposed for /r/, namely that it has no PLACE node, cannot be applied to j, whose PLACE-specification has to be the same as /i/.
I. The Prosodic Hierarchy 27 Unfortunately, the place-within-manner procedure suggested by Steriade (1987) and structurally encoded by Rice and Avery (1991) is not the correct one for Miogliola, which requires that place of articulation precede stricture features in Steriade's sense, that is, height in vowels and continuancy in consonants. I assume therefore a feature assignment process whereby the horizontal dimension of articulation, namely place of articulation, has precedence over the vertical dimension of articulation, namely height and continuancy.
