O knihe

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Lenition is a kind of consonant mutation that appears in many languages. Along with assimilation, it is one of the primary sources of historical change of languages. Lenition means "softening" or "weakening" (from Latin lenis = weak), and it refers to the change of a consonant considered "stronger" into one considered "weaker" (or fortis ¿ lenis). Common examples include voicing or sonorization, as in [f] ¿ [v]; affrication or spirantization (turning into an affricate or a fricative), as in [t] ¿ [ts] ¿ [s]; debuccalization (loss of place), as in [s] ¿ [h]; degemination, as in [k¿] ¿ [k]; deglottalization, such as [k'] ¿ [k], etc. These may occur one after the other in the history of a language. Eventually, consonants may be lost completely, which is the ultimate lenition. Lenition, then, can be seen as a movement on the sonority scale from less sonorous to more sonorous, or on a strength hierarchy from stronger to weaker.
