Language 93.4, December 2017 s1 PHONOLOGICAL ANALYSIS All dissimilation is computationally subsequential: Online appendices AMANDA PAYNE University of Delaware APPENDIX: CATEGORIZATION AND FST REPRESENTATIONS OF LANGUAGE PATTERNS This appendix lists the dissimilation patterns studied in the main article and categorizes them descriptively by type. For example, Yidiny is classified as a blocking dissimilation pattern because Dixon’s analysis suggests that the Yidiny pattern is the composition of two basic dissimilations. This appendix presents FST representations for each pattern. All states are final states, state 0 is always the initial state, and ε is the empty string. Most transitions are given in terms of the features Bennett (2013) and Suzuki (1998) used to describe each pattern, but occasionally specific segments are mentioned because they are particular morphemes. This is how Bennett and Suzuki typically describe the patterns, but I maintain it for readability only—the notation used is not meant to imply anything about the conceptual reality of particular features.
