I intend to explore phonological processes in Yoruba in order to ascertain what
I intend to explore phonological processes in Yoruba in order to ascertain what a phonological word for this language is. This study issue is prompted by the absence of a well-established postulation regarding what constitutes a phonological word in Yoruba. I will also consider processes that span across word boundaries. Bibliography 1. Akinlabi, A. O, F.O Oyebade (1986). Lexical and Post-lexical Rule Application: Vowel Deletion in Yoruba Vowel.
