The change of a rhotic consonant into a voiced dental one is unique to some dialects of Ṭyare Neo-Aramaic amongst all other Aramaic and Semitic languages. It is a conditioned change, operating only on the Ṭyare retroflex rhotic phoneme /ɻ/ and only when the latter is geminated, whereas the two other rhotic phonemes of the Ṭyare cluster of dialects, alveolar /r/ and emphatic alveolar /ṛ/, are left unaffected. The diachronic background of Ṭyare ɻɻ > dd is discussed after a survey of problematic aspects related to its treatment in previous scholarly works.
