Lance" Subject: Re: Pulitzer Prze Some time within the past two years I came across clear evidence that 'coupon' does not pattern like other palatalizations. That is, thre is no implicational relationship. It's not in the Webster's Guide to Usage, but I don't recall where. Both kyu/kupon and pyu/pullitzer are mavericks, because the palatalization "rule" applies only to -peripheral consonants. DMLance
