Bakovi (2005) proposes that patterns of sufficiently-similar seg-ment avoidance are the result of interacting agreement and anti-gemination constraints, a pattern known as cross-derivational feed-ing (CDF). The bleeding interactions between epenthesis and as-similation which prevent adjacent sufficiently-similar segments in English are shown to follow, however, from extragrammatical con-siderations. Several case studies provide evidence against the major predictions of CDF.
