Irish phonology has been studied as a discipline since the late 19th century, with numerous researchers publishing descriptive accounts of dialects from all regions where the language is spoken. More recently, theoretical linguists have also turned their attention to Irish phonology, producing a number of books, articles, and doctoral theses on. 1st Edition Published on J by Routledge This book explores cross linguistic variation in nasalization.

A nasal vowel is a vowel that is produced with a lowering of the soft palate (or velum) so that the air flow escapes through the nose and the mouth simultaneously, as in the French vowel /ɑ̃/ (help info) or Amoy [ɛ̃].By contrast, oral vowels are produced without a stricter sense, nasal vowels shall not be confused with nasalised vowelsEntity (decimal): &#;.

The book is a thorough study of the specific Irish dialect spoken in Erris, Co. Mayo. The book i ncludes phonetic description of vowels, diphthongs and consonants. There are chapters on 'glides', 'nasalization, 'sandhi', 'elision', 'length in vowels', 'syllable division' and 'stress'. Slender consonants are palatalized, which means the tongue is pushed up toward the hard palate during the articulation.

The contrast between broad and slender consonants is crucial in Irish, because the meaning of a word can change if a broad consonant is substituted for. Try the new Google Books.

Two segments or one?: nasalized voiced plosives in Old Irish1 Old Irish nasalization (also called eclipsis) affects among other things the voiced plosives, d, and g.

This type of mutation occurs rather often in Old Irish texts, but as yet there does not seem to be any agreement as to the actual pronunciation of these nasalized voiced plosives.

More recently, theoretical linguists have also turned their attention to Irish phonology, producing a number of books, articles, and doctoral theses on the topic. One of the most important aspects of Irish phonology is that almost all consonants come in pairs, with one having a "broad" pronunciation and the other a "slender" one.

Stifter leads the novice through the idiosyncrasies of the language, such as initial mutations and the double inflection of verbs. Filled with translation exercises based on selections from Old Irish texts, the book provides a practical introduction to the language and its rich history.5/5(1).
