should historical phonologists expect to use exactly the same units in their analyses as phonologists working on the analysis of contemporary languages? I think it's a pretty clear case to make if we compare (i) synchronic analysis of past stages of languages with (ii) synchronic analysis of contemporary phonological states - that's just a kind of uniformitarianism, really. But it is indeed potentially different to compare (ii) with (iii) diachronic phonological analysis.
