The total repertory of liaisons therefore includes all liaison environments with their frequencies of occurrence. As our aim here is to analyze the productivity power of each type of environment by calculating the number of realizations produced, we concentrate here on enacted linking; we postpone the ratio analysis of realized vs. virtual liaison to a forthcoming paper on the social stratification of French liaison. Figure 1 provides an example of a liaison environment. Recording ID 75cv11 corresponds to the performance linked [trwazɑ̃].

G. in linked (this particular instantiation being a relatively high-frequency lexical environments, according to our own analysis, as it occupies position 13th in Table 1). However, syntactic cohesion and frequency of co-occurrence sometimes conflict. One such case is reported in Bybee (2005: 35): the construction [verb + determinant] in the specific case of linked (followed by a noun) generates much more liaisons than any other contexts in which co-occurs with other vowelinitial words, including those with a higher degree of syntactic cohesion (such as [auxiliary + past participle] linked , for instance).

At the crossroads of traditional sociolinguistics and experimental phonology, contemporary sociophonology investigates the phenomena of speech use and comprehension from a cognitivist perspective and explicitly borrows themes and concepts from experimental psychology, particularly from exemplar theory and the idea that multi-sensorial mnestic traces are stored in the mind of the speaker according to their distribution (frequency) and recoverability (recency) (Goldinger 1998; Foulkes & Docherty 2006; Johnson 2006).
