Reevaluating the nature of interactions between tone and segment in phonology, linguists investigate such issues as what tone-segment interactions exist and how the facts can be incorporated into a phonological account of the language, whether interaction between tones and vowel quality really is universally absent, what types of tone-consonant interactions appear across languages, and the relationship between diachrony
and synchrony in relevant processes.

Far from being "a manifesto of historiographical discontinuity" (Agamben 15), Foucault's archaeology in Agamben's interpretation remains outside all dichotomies between the "archaic" and "contemporary," seeking to think an undecidability "in regards to diachrony
and synchrony, imicity and multiplicity" (29).
In this approach, not only the uniqueness of one that separates it from the 'all" is missing, the specific life span of the one, which is captured by the term diachrony
by Levinas, is also reduced to the postulated presence of an individual at the time of the theorization.

He goes on to summarize the prevailing view of BH diachrony
, according to which, broadly speaking, the Babylonian Exile serves as the watershed separating First-Temple CBH and Second-Temple LBH, noting such challenges as dialect and listing a few of the major relevant scholarly works.
Vaninskaya finds Tolkien to be a "Victorian Modernist" (363)--with much in common with Eliot, Joyce, and Pound and their interest in mythic allusions and fragments, but yet with perhaps still more interest, like the Victorians, in "origins and wholes, in diachrony
and the continuous development revealed by historical philology" (364).
Lest this wording imply any serious opposition, Bernstein adds: "my approach has been one of synchrony on the border of diachrony

Rules are not consequent but subjacent: rule A applies if and only if rule B applies (that is, A is subjacent to B), which implies but does not define a derivational diachrony
In the drone matrix, the diachrony

At the beginning of the book Gumbrecht writes a "User's Manual" reminiscent to Julio Cortazar's Hopscotch (1963) and Milorad Pavitch's Khazar Dictionary (1984), informing the reader that he or she can begin to read anywhere in the text and hereafter either read on or jump back to a random section, thereby deliberately shuffling synchrony and diachrony
and thus leaving to the reader's discretion the task .
