The current study casts some light on how Arabic consonantal geminates are treated within the CV phonological theory. There are several general characteristics of consonantal geminate that researchers in phonological theory have been investigating for some years, beginning in preautosegmental frameworks and continuing recently within the CV phonological theory. Attempts have been made to account for the special properties of consonantal geminates and to see some of the ways as to how geminate behaves phonologically. Moreover, it concentrates on essential cases as to whether geminate consonants are looked upon as one long segment or as two short independent exponents that are found at syllable junctions.
