We predict drastic changes of splittings in the v-v sequence of a linearly J-T inactive mode along a progression of a linearly J-T active mode. This phenomenon results from the mutual dynamics of the two modes. Preliminary experimental evidence is in accord with these predictions. Previously observed variations in unique splittings due to vibrational perturbations along J-T progressions resulting from asymmetric deuterations can also be explained using the theoretical analysis developed here.
