Example text

There is a fricative variant which can occur in any position, but it is relatively uncommon. In other languages the symbol /β/ normally refers to a bilabial fricative; the International Phonetics Association has no symbol for the bilabial approximant, probably because the bilabial approximant and bilabial fricative are not distinguished phonemically in known languages of the world. However it is customary to use the /β/ symbol to represent the bilabial approximant in the languages in which it occurs (International Phonetics Association 1999: 9), as has been done here.

This alternation between Irl and Idl is lexically constrained; it only occurs in a small group of question and time words, and never in any other words containing Irl or /d/. 10 below. 2 Nasals There are three nasal phonemes in Lavukaleve: Iml, InI and /r/. Nasal phonemes in Lavukaleve do not have any obvious allophonic variation. Nasals, like stops, can all occur syllable-initially, but unlike some stops, they can also all occur syllable-finally. 3 Liquids There are two liquid phonemes in Lavukaleve; a rhotic trill Irl and a lateral /I/.

There are three types of partial reduplication, and full reduplication also occurs. Partial reduplication can take the shape of reduplication of an initial CV, CVV or CVCV: • CV reduplication: namu 'shake' na-namu\ haua 'care for' ha-haua; telako 'one' te-telako\ rongea 'play' ro-rongea·, kiu 'fight' ki-kiu • CVV reduplication: rao 'surround' rao-rao\ veo 'arrive' veo-veo\ ria 'be cross' ria-ria • CVCV reduplication: namu 'shake' namu-namu; hulur, ruvale 'huge' ruva-ruvale hului 'go round' hulu- Full reduplication of longer words also occurs, but only in the following two adverbs in the corpus: karial 'slowly, gently' karial-karial, rikai 'slowly' rikairikai.
