Question Re: Reduplication

Hi All,

If you had a language with a pretty standard intervocalic voicing rule (let's
say, /s/ > [z] / V_V), yet you had reduplication, how would that affect the
voicing rule?

I realize that it's simply a matter of rule-ordering and cyclicity, but I was
just wondering what's more common among natural languages that feature
reduplication and intervocalic voicing (or intervocalic anything, for that

Here's an example:

Phonemically: /sopo/ > /sosopo/
Phonetically: [sopo] > [sosopo] or [sozopo]?

That's all for now.  Thanks in advance!
