Our purpose is to compile views on the major tendencies for consonant development, as observed independently by various experts and on various linguistic domains. Such a knowledge database would be useful to cross-validate impressions on diachronic universals and to initiate a formalization of diachronic processes.
This poll complements a more ambitious ongoing project for determining diachronic universals from a database of reported phonological changes, UNIDIA, currently under construction. We hope to make it soon available on the DiaDM webpage.
It takes only a few minutes to complete this questionnaire, and as a contributor, you will have full access to the data gathered through this operation.
