This chapter examines Nonderived Environment Blocking (NDEB) in the context of the phonological rule known as Korean Palatalization, which shows NDEB effects and applies only in environments derived by virtue of a combination of morphemes. It discusses Korean Palatalization both diachronically and synchronically, and argues that derived environments arise from a change in the ranking of lexical faithfulness constraints. The chapter also suggests that NDEB is not a rigid principle of grammar but a language-specific consequence of the way individual phonological rules are stated or constraints are ranked in a particular grammar.

Keywords:   morphemes, Nonderived Environment Blocking, phonological rules, Korean Palatalization, derived environments, grammar, faithfulness constraints
