Debuccalization of initial consonant is sometimes phonologically conditioned, and sometimes determined by other causes. This paper is an attempt to investigate the latter case, finding in Chinese dialects that some single cases of debuccalization are actually caused by the combined influences of meaning generalization and phonological conditioning. After analyzing the debuccalization of kh-, th-, s- and ʂ-, this paper also makes an investigation into the reason why this is the case.
