Seller Inventory # HG has 15 phonemic monophthongs in stressed syllables and three phonemic diphthongs, whereas LG has 17 monophthongs and 7 diphthongs, and SF has 20 monophthongs and 7 diphthongs. Both SF and LG differ from HG by having a complete set of long open mid vowels /ɛː œː ɔː/, which in SF are largely restricted to loans from : Jörg Peters, Wilbert J.

Heeringa, Heike E. Schoormann. Previous investigations on Saterland Frisian report a large vowel inventory, including up to 20 monophthongs and 16 diphthongs in stressed position. Conducting a cross-dialectal acoustic study on Saterland Frisian vowels in Ramsloh, Scharrel, and Strücklingen, the objective is to provide a phonetic description of vowel category realization and to identify acoustic dimensions which may enhance Cited by: 3.

The present study compares the acoustic realization of Saterland Frisian, Low German, and High German vowels by trilingual speakers in the Saterland. The Saterland is a rural municipality in. The Afrikaans vowels /ɛ, ɔ, ɑ, œ, ə, i, u, y/ are generally taken to be short, contrary to the long vowels a, e, o, ø and diphthongs.

Note that this is contrary to the general position in the case of Dutch in two ways: we count schwa, /ə/, as a full vowel in Afrikaans, and, /i, u, y/ are regarded as short. The Handbook of English Pronunciation presents a comprehensive exploration of English pronunciation with essential topics for applied linguistics researchers and teachers, including language acquisition, varieties of English, historical perspectives, accent’s changing role, and connections to discourse, technology, and pedagogy.

Provides thorough descriptions of all elements of English. Vowels are customarily represented in a chart as in Figure 1, that is a slightly adapted version of the IPA vowel chart;the Afrikaans short vowels are placed in the eight main cardinal positions, including / ə, œ, ɛ, ɔ, ɑ /, while /i, y, u / are also classified by most phoneticians and phonologists (e.g.

Although the Constitution of Myanmar officially recognizes the English name of the language as the Myanmar language, most English speakers continue to refer to the language as Burmese, after Burma, the older name for Myanmar.

Our first concern in LAEME, as it was in LALME, is the recording of text languages and the display of their features in profiles and on regional maps.2 This has to be done in two stages.

The first order taxonomy is orthographic: the primary written evidence of the manuscripts. But the creation of insightful interpretative maps (such as the LALME Dot Maps) involves consideration of one major.

Proto-Germanic had four diphthongs: *ai, *au, *eu and *ia. The vocalic ele­ ments of these diphthongs have the same origins as their corresponding short vowels, and can be traced back to the Indo-European proto-language accordingly.

Likewise, the off-glides *i and *u go back to PIE *i and *u. PGm. *aiFile Size: 14MB. The previous Data Analysis section analyzed the data phonetically, that is to say it literally described the phonetic sounds the study’s participants chose in replacement of the phonemic interdental fricatives.

In verbs, Old English distinguishes between diVerent tenses (present and past), moods (indicative, subjunctive, and imperative), numbers (singular and plural), and persons (Wrst, second, and third).

Further discussion of these features, with detailed examples, will be found at pp. 45–6. Focusing on English comparative adjective variation (prouder/more proud), I present two web-based experiments. Study 1 demonstrates that language users are sensitive to usage, semantics, and phonology, which leads to predictable changes in their bias between choosing -er or more.

The Germanic languages are a branch of the Indo-European language family spoken natively by a population of about million people mainly in Europe, North America, Oceania and Southern most widely spoken Germanic language, English, is the world's most widely spoken language with an estimated 2 billion Germanic languages are derived from Proto-Germanic, Linguistic classification: Indo-EuropeanGermanic.

Finnish, whose endonym is suomi (or suomen kieli [ˈsuo̯meŋ ˈkie̯li]) is a Uralic language of the Finnic branch spoken by the majority of the population in Finland and by ethnic Finns outside Finland. Finnish, along with Swedish, is an official language of Finland; Finnish is also an official minority language in Sweden, both Standard Finnish and Meänkieli, its own language or Language family: Uralic, Finno-UgricFinnicFinnish.

A stem-final consonant triggers voicing assimilation of /t/ in three suffixes /ta~da/ past/perfect, /te~de/ gerund and /tari~dari/ representative.3 This process of assimilation is shown in the minimal pair given in (6), although a later process of lenition affects the velars, /k/ and /g/, and makes the effect of the voicing assimilation opaque.

The results are based on an analysis of c. 50 sociolinguistic interviews with Frisian speaking youth aged 16–22 of various genders and sexualities. We focus on two variables: (s) — A fronted pronunciation of /s/ has been shown cross-linguistically to vary by gender and to be used by gay men as an identity marker (Mack & Munson, ; Pharao.In contrast, Canadian English and Canadian French both have large vowel inventories, and a number of overlapping vowels, including the four vowels targeted in this study.

Thus, it is especially notable that these early childhood bilinguals, who are not necessarily simultaneous bilinguals, were able to produce contrasts between the two languages Cited by: In this chapter I also demonstrate the use of schemas for phono-logical generalizations and present a model for the effect of sound change on the lexicon that allows for both phonetic and lexical gradu-alness as well as for the tendency for high-frequency words to change faster than low-frequency words.
