Abstract: "The primary aim of this paper is to discuss and analyze labial-velar and velarlabial (historical) developments in two related languages: English and Dutch. However, in order to propose an explanation for such changes, first we need to address a problem of a somewhat unexpected phonological patterning of two articulatorily unrelated consonant classes and its high frequency. This research task presupposes the necessity to study the elemental make-up of velar and labial consonants in both languages. The assumption is that labials and velars must share a phonological element. This common-element solution explains their intimate relationship which is evident in the phonological activity of both classes. In short, simply because both classes interact phonologically, they are assumed to share an element. Additionally, the study aspires to provide a formal mechanism which is able to capture the changes in question and explain the context in which they occur." […] (fragm.)
