Title Adjacent Syllable Nuclei in Masset Haida
Description:"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."
