Cluster deletion
2 sounds become 1; partial PCR or total TCR deletion of one or all members of a consonant cluster
Cluster substitution
same # of sounds: replacement of one or all members of a cluster by another sound
Stopping
substitution of stops for affricates and fricatives
usually /p/ /t/ /b/ /d/

Vocalization
Voc
substitution of a vowel for a syllabic liquid
labial assimilation
non-labial consonant becomes a labial because of the influence of another sound in the word

a voiced obstruent (stops, fricatives, affricates) following a vowel becomes voiceless
phonological processes
1) syllabic structure process
2) substitution process
3) assimilation process
Syllabic structure process

Substitution Process
one class of sounds is substituted for another class of sounds
Assimilation process
one sound changes to become like another neighboring sound
