Example text

Moehnilabib (1979) recognizes six vowels, corresponding to the phonemic inventory posited here. Notably absent in all but Stevens and Cohn & Lockwood is any distinction between [ə] and [ɨ]. And, in fact, no practical orthography ever devised for Madurese has ever recognized such a distinction (see section 8). Those that make use of symbols other than a, e, i, o, u identify six or seven graphemes but never include a distinct symbol for []. What, then, is the status of [ɨ]? e. to regularize the system of alternating vowels.

There are no V sequences, as ə only occurs in closed syllables. Finally, [aɨ] and [ə] are, to the best of my knowledge, unattested. Thus, the only surface vowel clusters that are found are [aɛ], [aɔ], [ɤi] and [ɤu], as in (19) [paɛ ‘bitter’ [aɔn] ‘year’ [bɤi] ‘else’ [ḍɤun] ‘leaf’ 15 [aɛ ‘feces’ [paɔ] ‘mango’ [cɤi] ‘ginger’ [cɤu] ‘far’ There are cases of what appear to be clusters of [ml], [mr], [ms], [nr] and [ns]. However, they are quite limited (perhaps fewer than 20) and they clearly arise from reduplication of a monosyllabic root to form the preferred disyllabic root.

See Chapter 9. 34 Chapter 2 Phonology lyses in which the conditioning environment depends on a feature that they refer to as [lowered larynx] which is manifested in the voiced and voiceless aspirated consonants. Given the conditioning environment, the non-high vowels are expected following [l], [r], [] and [s]. And that is what the data show when considering only word-initial [l], [r], and [s]. ) However, there are data in the previous sets that show instances of high vowels following [l] and [r].
