Morphophonemic rules in Odia and Kui: A comparative study
Dr. Govinda Chandra Penthoi
Morphophonemic rules account for the phonologically conditioned positional variants of morphemes. They are context sensitive and ordered. When a stem is combined with a suffix, or two stems come in contact with each other, sometimes there are changes in the shape of one or both. It has been observed the vowel so far the morphophonemic changes in both Odia and Kui is concerned, If we count it numerically, Odia shows nine consonantal alternations with nineteen possibilities but in Kui there are eight consonantal alternations with nine possibilities. But in Kui it is relatively restricted because there are only nine possibilities which prove that Odia is more flexible than that of Kui in this regards
