Given that the realization of alveolo-palatal affricate following palatal glide is a complex phenomenon, it is possible that there is evidence of the interaction between processes, such as the tendency to the occlusive realization of the variable in the stressed syllable, different behavior depending on word classes (tendency to affricates in verbs and occlusives in names), and also the effect of the diminutive (marked by nasal palatal or nasalized palatal glide).

Clear northern traits can be seen in affricates in certain consonant combinations and 2nd person plural verb endings, but the presence of Tuscan is also clear in his use of palatals and in the lack of metaphony.
Unvoiced and voiced consonants were initially positioned on left and right sides of the circle, connected at the bottom across the voiced and unvoiced affricates, and connected at the top across voiced and unvoiced plosives.
The voiceless affricates and voiceless stops demonstrate such kind of tendency.
