The Totonac-Tepehua language kin, although typologically just like another Mesoamerican languages, has no longer but been verified to be concerning the other language kin. Misantla Totonac is the southernmost number of Totonac and is spoken within the zone among Xalapa, the capital of Veracruz, Mexico and Misantla, Veracruz. In 1974, a newly paved highway attached Xalapa and Misantla bringing a comparatively remoted region into touch with mainstream Mexican language and tradition. for that reason, Misantla Totonac is not any longer received as a primary language via the neighborhood teenagers and is speedily being changed via Spanish. A GRAMMAR OF MISANTLA TOTONAC offers the phonological constitution of the language and the most efficient morphological strategies. It describes inflection and derivation of all significant be aware periods (verbs, nominals, and statives) intimately. It introduces grammatical contract and notice order phenomena, and offers the main salient and important points of Misantla Totonac grammar. even though a number of Totonac-Tepehua grammars exist in Spanish, this can be the single released grammar of the Totonac-Tepehua language relations at present to be had in English. Winner of the yearly Society for the learn of Indigenous Languages of the Americas (SSILA) booklet Award, this marks the 3rd quantity to be released within the sequence. "The fabric provided here's key to any destiny paintings in reconstructing the proto-language. . . .[It] is an important contribution to either normal linguistics in addition to to Mesoamerican experiences. -James Watters, summer time Institute of Linguistics

Phonetic implementation of Korean “denasalization” and its variation related to prosody. IULC Working Papers Online, 8: 1–23. 2 Syllable‐Based Phonological Processes Young‐mee Yu Cho 1 Introduction Korean segmental phonology provides an extremely fertile ground for research due to a wide range of interesting processes such as consonantal assimilation, post‐obstruent tensification, intersononant voicing, and vowel harmony in mimetic vocabulary, among others.

Nominal stems (optionally) undergo coda‐neutralization while verbal stems always syllabify with verbal suffixes, by obligatorily placing the final stem consonant as the onset of the following syllable when the suffix starts with a vowel. There are several approaches in dealing with this asymmetry. The first is to assume category‐specific phonological processes. Indeed, there are category‐specific processes such as tensing of the verb ending suffix ‐ta (but not other verbal suffixes) after the verb‐stem.

G. g. ‘well done’ can sound both encouraging and ­sarcastic, depending on the prosody and the context). This chapter focuses on the linguistic use of prosody, such as word level prosody, rhythm, the Prosodic Hierarchy, and speech timing in Seoul Korean (Korean, henceforth). In Korean, variations in pitch or length do not affect the lexical meaning, although they contribute to the meaning of the utterance. Therefore, Korean is an ­intonation language, but not a tone language like Chinese, or a lexical pitch accent language like Tokyo Japanese.
