Example text

Nasals In Cherokee there are two nasal sounds; they contrast by place of articulation. Two examples are shown in (18). ’ The bilabial nasal /m/ does not cluster with /h/; moreover, this sound is rare and occurs in only a small set of words. ’ In addition to the small set of native words, /m/ also appears more commonly as borrowed words and names from English. Some of these words are listed in (19). 3. Glides Glides are similar to fricatives in that the air flows continuously through the mouth; unlike fricatives, the flow of the airflow is not very restricted.

10 Pulte and Feeling (2002) discuss their decision to use the conjugated verb as the citation form in the dictionary. In defense of this format, they argue that this is the natural citation form for Cherokee speakers and that listing the bare form of the verb ‘…would have made use of the dictionary extremely difficult for persons without 27 training in linguistics’ (2002:64). The authors point out the need to balance a userfriendly dictionary with a dictionary geared for linguists. They argue that a bare stem form, while more acceptable to linguists, would be confusing for the non-specialist; such forms could be included as an alphabetical list in the appendix.

As with the labialized velars /kw/ and /khw/, their separate identity as distinctive sounds is established through their behavior relative to vowel deletion and metathesis. For example, in (13) the underlying form of the verb stem is –alihkhothtita; this stem is shown on the third line of the analysis. All verbs appear with a person prefix: a unit that attaches to the front that indicates who is involved with the action of the verb. 2) that occurs with the third person prefix, the /l/ and 39 /h/ are brought together; as a result, the conjugated verb in (13b) has[ُ].
