(19a) shows that clusters in which a sonorant is followed by a voiceless stop are not broken up by epenthesis. On the other hand, (19b) illustrates an additional interesting phenomenon which is optional in Connemara but fairly regular in Munster: the homorganic clusters are often preceded by a long nucleus.

They show that making lists of segments or phonemic inventories is both futile and misleading if a thorough analysis of the internal structure does not go with it. 61 In Donegal Irish palatalized dentals are pronounced with affrication (Ó Dochartaigh 1987).
