They involve verbs which, in a manner of speaking, show a generalized operation of WEAKENING throughout their inflectional paradigms, and not exclusively in forms where suffixal schwa follows. Let me take the back vowel verb braden »to fry» (stem: braad) as a first example. It has the paradigm of (23) in the indicative mood. -en past braadde/braaide braadde/braaide braadden/braaiden gebraden/gebraaien These forms can be brought into line in the following manner. Forms such as braad and braadt are both pronounced [bra:t] and show, given the voiced a of braden, the operation of independ- - 29 - ently motivated processes of Dutch phonology: final devoicing, 2 voicing assimilation, and degemination of consonants· The latter rule is also involved in the derivation of the nonweakened past tense forms, where braadde(n) is pronounced [bratda].

Thus, keeping ourselves to front vowels for the moment, we find alternations as in (29), where the vowels of the singular may be diphthongized by final vowel diphthongization, and where the plurals are pronounced with j_ on the boundary between stem and suffix.
