Example text

1 PLOSIVES There are four voiceless plosives in Skolt Saami, a bilabial plosive [p], an alveolar plosive /t/, a palatal plosive /c/ and a velar plosive /k/, all of which have a voiced counterpart /b/, /d/, /ɟ/ and /g/. The voiceless plosives occur in word-initial, medial and final positions. Examples of each of these are given below. Note that, due to the structure of Skolt Saami words and the consonant centre, consonants appearing word-medially or wordfinally are usually geminates. IPA INITIAL MEDIAL FINAL p päärr (wave) rääppad (ladle) kuõpp (mold) t tuärr (fight) mättad (be able) kueʹtt (den) c ǩeʹrres (sledge) kââʹǩǩed (rub) pååttâǩ (potato) k kõõrâs (severe) viikkâd (take) tukk (herd) Voiceless plosives are preaspirated after vowels and sonorant consonants either word-medially or word-finally, although this is not phonologically distinctive.

Examples without any source given are elicited examples. not all of which would typically be included in a dictionary. The number of unique lexical forms given is, nevertheless, an astonishing accomplishment. fi/algu/ [accessed 6-Nov-2009]. org/computing/fieldworks/ [accessed 6-Nov-2009]. nl/praat/ [accessed 6-Nov-2009]. 7 T HEORETICAL FRAM EW ORK The aim of this thesis is to describe the structure of the Skolt Saami language in a way which will make it accessible to the widest possible audience and useful to scholars regardless of their particular theoretical framework.

8 cs. 6 cs. 6 cs. for /c/. The fact that the longest burst of all voiceless plosives was seen in the case of /c/ is to be expected from Ladefoged's explanation. The observation of Korhonen et al. (1973: 18) that <ǩ> often resembles a postalveolar affricate might be attributed solely to this slower release involving phonetic affrication, but might also be attributed to a sound change in progress from a plosive to a phonological affricate, /c/ → /c͡ç/. Indeed, spectrographic evidence from recordings made during field work for this grammar do seem to suggest the latter, whereby the ratio of closure to burst of <ǩ> varies between younger and older speakers.
