Subject: Re: Pulitzer Prze
Did someone already ask this?
Are pyulitzer people also kyupon people? And, pulitzer people ku-?
I think I was a pulitzer/kup)n, and now I'm a pyu/kyu-
And I'm beginning to suspect that I palatalized "coupon" (a word
I rarely say, and haven't heard much) when I moved to a kyu
and have dragged the pulitzer prize along with it.
A student corrected my "between you and me" yesterday. "I guess you
were being informal" he said.
How widespread is "PREP PRO CONJ I"?
I'm generally not a palatalizer, but coupon is a big exception in my pattern.
