For example, assuming the hypothetical underlying representation /prn/, the syllabified form [prn›] (and not [pr›n]) is the predicted outcome according to the basic syllabification rule. This output satisfies NOCODA, while the form [pr›n] incurs one violation of this constraint. Each output is unfaithful (by changing [syllabic] to [+syllabic]) to an underlying segment.
