Query:   Dear Linguists,

I'm looking for information on pretonic schwa-zero alternation in
English, e.g. police~p'lice, potato~p'tato etc. I'm particularly
interested in whether there are any constraints on its application,
e.g. in the quality of the flanking consonants. I haven't found any
detailed literature on this topic, so I would also be grateful for
references. Thank you in advance,
