Abstract

The present article attempts a revision of the traditional lenition theory for the Middle Korean language by presenting internal and typological evidence in favor of interpreting non-leniting Middle Korean consonants as originating from original *nC (sometimes possibly *lC) clusters and providing further support for the fact that leniting consonants were just plain voiceless obstruents.
