merging of two or more phonological segments into one
the change of a monophthong into a diphthong

Given A and B, initially only one of them (A) could apply, A applies first; representation is then changed in some way that B becomes applicable. R1 creates environment for R2 to apply to.
B (which initially could not apply) is ordered first and nothing happens; A then applies. R1 applies too late to create environment for R2.
Given A and B, both could apply initially; A applies first; representation is changed in some way such that B cannot apply. R1 destroys environment for R2 to apply to.
B (which initially had the potential to apply) is ordered first and applies; A then applies next. R1 applies too late to destroy environment for R2.
