ABSTRACT
Korean phonotactics prohibits complex codas; therefore, the language employs two strategies that allow for the breakup of consonant clusters to conform to this prohibition. These strategies include "relinking" (as used by Choo & O'Grady 2003:58-9), that is, the realization of consonant clusters across syllable boundaries, and deletion. The preference of these strategies fits into an Optimality-Theoretic framework, which this paper explicates. By using well established constraints, this analysis complements OT research on similar phonological processes in Korean so that these processes can be unified under a single constraint ranking.
