Heo Yong. 2007. 2. A Typological Approach to the Adjustment Process on Syllable Structure Constraints. Bilingual Research 33, 297-315. Each language has their own syllable structure constraints just like it has own phontactic constraints. It follows from these constraints that loanwords often sound so totally different from the way they are pronounced in the donor language. The Phonological issue we are dealing with in this paper is the loanword pronunciation of (word-final) consonant clusters in donor language spoken by native speakers of languages that prohibit such clusters. We see that there are two types of pronunciation; one is pronouncing all the consonants of the cluster with the additional vowel, and the other is omitting a consonant of the cluster with no vowel after it. In this paper I claim that these two types can be accounted for by the nucleus-dominant principle and onset-dominant principle. (HUFS)
