Adjacent Syllable Nuclei in Masset Haida
|"Abstract: Preparatory to describing a unique way in which one|
|language-- Masset Haida-- treats adjacent syllable nuclei|
|in the stem, the vowel and pitch systems and two types of|
|lexical syllable boundary are described. The MH treatment|
|of adjacent syllatle nuclei is then explained in|
|terms of three 'conspiracies' and it is shown that a formal|
|description requires a hierarchical syllable-structure|
|notation. In the remainder of the paper, MH 'coalescence'|
|of adjacent vowels and glides is briefly described|
|as further evidence for the analysis of the pitch|
|system, and evidence is given supporting the conspiracy|
|explanation given earlier."|
