9783862886029: Ma Manda Phonology

Ma Manda Phonology. Ryan Pennington. James Cook University. This study presents a phonological description of Ma Manda (ISO 639-3: skc), a Finisterre-Huon language of the Trans-New Guinea family. This is accomplished through a sketch of the segmental phonology, syllable structure and phonotactics, suprasegmental features, and morphophonemic alternations. In addition to documenting the phonological domains listed above, particular emphasis is given to several unique and interesting processes, e.g. a process of long distance nasal agreement, also known in the literature as nasal consonant harmony (Hansson 2010, Walker 2011). In Ma Manda, NV (nasal+vowel) sequences initiate the prenasalization of a following tautomorphemic voiced plosive. Ma Manda is the only language known to exhibit this pattern. Finally, a number of complex and phonetically unmotivated alternations are triggered when consonants concatenate across morpheme boundaries. In Ma Manda these processes are robust, productive, and regular. Consequently, several aspects of the sound patterns of this understudied language of Papua New Guinea are noteworthy for the contribution they make to linguistic typology in general, and to phonological theory in particular. ISBN 978 3 86288 602 9 (Hardbound). LINCOM Studies in Phonology 04. 230pp. (with CD/DV incl. ca. 400 audio files, 2 video files). 2015.
