Description The aim of this paper is to explore branching onsets in Old Czech (OCz) and analyze their diachronic development in Modern Czech (MCz). Which clusters should be granted this status on which grounds? Among those clusters that qualify, which ones do actually occur in the written record? Which of non existing clusters are systematic (i.e. grammar-driven) gaps? We argue that these questions can be answered by looking at the right edge of words rather than their beginning as is a common practice.
