The aim of this paper is to examine the opacity in Iraqi Arabic resulting from the correlation between stress assignment and vowel epenthesis. For this, after classifying the stress assignment in Spanish, Swahili, Iraqi Arabic, and Dakota, we will present the opacity problem in Iraqi Arabic. Opacity has been a challenge to Generative Phonology and classic Optimality Theory(Prince & Smolensky 1993). OO-correspondence (Benua, 1995), Lexical Constraint Domains (Ito & Mester, 1995a-b), Two-level Well-formedness (Orgun, 1995), Sympathy Theory (McCarthy, 1998), Lexical Accent (Hammond, 1999), and Multi-stratal Evaluation (Ito & Mester, 1999) have been proposed to handle the opacity. But there are also problems in them. In this paper to resolve the problems in Generative Phonology, classic Optimality Theory, and Local Conjunction, We will try to resolve the opacity problems by employing the new account of McCarthy(2006a-d, 2007)`s Optimality Theory with Candidate Chains(OT-CC). Based on OT-CC, this paper investigates and analyses the opacity. And We support the superiority of OT-CC.
