    Default Consonant clusters and CODA

    Hi,

    Im currently doinga diplom a course through INTESOL and am working on the phonology and phonetic unit. NOT my favourite, let me tell you!

    Anyhow, Im totally confused regarding CODA.

    'squealed' - pre-final and a final coda
    'scratched' -final and post final coda
    (why not pre-final and final?)

    'waxed' - final, post final 1 and post final 2 coda
    'ninths' - pre-final, final and post final coda
    (why not final, post-final 1 and post-final 2?)

    How do you KNOW whether its pre-final or final?

    Totally at a loss here and I cant find any information - so Im hoping someone out there can help.
    Thanks, Leigh

    I have solved the mystery thanks to 'English Phonetics and Phonology' (Peter Roach) pg 73. There is a set of rules regarding consonants - it all makes sense now.
