PFV 26 My thanks to Barry Alpher for confirming this contrast, and supplying audio files to support it. 38 Phonology That neither rhotic is an allophone of the apical plosive or lateral is demonstrated by the following set of minimal contrasts: (29) wa:ɻin ‘chase’ wa:r ‘bad’ wa:t ‘incorrectly’ wa:l ‘silly’ Finally, it was mentioned above that the glottal stop is elided by many speakers, often producing a long vowel (as in the case of /waʔap/ -> /wa:p/ ‘river’). g. glottalisation of adjacent segments).

4 Lateral There is a single lateral phoneme which is basically alveolar in articulation, though a retroflex allophone is conditioned by a preceding retroflex approximant. g. /pork/ ‘big’ ~ /polk/24. 23 This depressed tongue root sometimes gives rise to a preceding phonetic palatal glide (particularly following the reflexive morpheme, -e), which Alpher (personal communication) suggests may relate to the Arandic pre-palatalised stops, which themselves developed from original retroflex phonemes. g.

G. /waath/ ‘search’ contrasts with /paath/ ‘fire’, cf. e. /w/ is never realised as [p]). e. [pa:wat̪] ~ [ pa:βat̪]). Similarly, whilst /pal/ ‘towards’ has allophones [pal]~[wal], this 19 Such variation in release is commonplace and will not be remarked upon in the discussion of the following obstruent phonemes. 20 Hall (1968:61) also remarks: “/p/ has an alternative nasal release used by most speakers word- medially before /m/. It is a voiceless velic flap with the lips closed as in /tanp-m/ ~ [unreproducible] ‘pushed’”.
