Linguistic LingField(s):  Phonology

Query:   Last September on ADS-L, Wilson Gray wrote:

''Some time in the early to middle 'Nineties, a brief analysis of
English consonant clusters, IIRC, was published in Linguistic Inquiry.
The author noted that her analysis had one major flaw: it predicted
that ''Arctic'' [arktIk] would be pronounced as though spelled
''Artic'' [artIk].'' [AMZ: which of course it is, very frequently; that was the
topic of the ADS-L thread]

I've been trying to track down this article, without success so far.

Wilson's recollection might be inaccurate as to time period, the
journal, or the sex of the author.

Note: I am NOT asking for discussion of the [artIk] pronunciation
itself, just for information about this reference.
