The phonological rule creates responsibility in words like kisses, buses, bushes, judges, and churches. This pattern makes different form in oppositeness to its non-syllabic pronunciation in words like caps, hats, cakes, and breaths. In this case the plural phonemes are voiceless, whereas the words cabs, cads, cogs, caves are categorized into voiced.
In accounting to those variations of plural morpheme –s, there will be three assumptions. The first assumption is that the plural morpheme –s is underspecified (that is not marked by the feature of “voiced”). The second is that the voicing assimilation operates to assign voicing to plural morpheme. The third assumption is after a class of English sounds, an epenthetic vowel is introduced prior to the operation of the voicing assimilation rule. This rule for the syllabic nature of the plural morpheme in words like kisses and bushes, those words have the syllabic form with plural morpheme –s as a voiced segment, namely /z/.
