Abstract and Keywords

In amphichronic phonology, synchronic and diachronic explanation feed each other. The architecture of grammar predicts the possible modes of implementation of phonological change (including neogrammarian regularity) and the life cycle of sound patterns. In turn, the life cycle accounts for synchronic phenomena such as scattered rules and the relative stratal affiliation of cognate processes.

Keywords: Amphichronic, stratal, neogrammarian, life cycle, phonologization, stabilization, domain narrowing, morphology-free phonetics, rule scattering, rule generalization
