- This study examines some important phonological rules of Korean and English to etermine their relative importance as rules of pronunciation, and ultimately to show their relative importance as phonological rules.
It has been found that neutralizing rules are not always more important than nonneutralizing, allophonic ones. Whether neutralizing or not, the rules that produce alternations of the primary sounds are more important than those that produce alternations of the secondary sounds (cf. §3.2. (9')), the rules that characterize or enhance the distinctiveness of such important phonological units as word and syllable are more important than those that do not have such function, and the rules that apply even in slow speech and across word boundaries are more important than those that apply only in normal speech and within word boundaries.
