Etymologies

Sorry, no etymologies found.

Examples

  • However, labialized stops, palatalized stops and now ejectives seem to me to be purely imaginative overkill, based on nothing concrete.

    A new value for Minoan 'd'

  • However, my explanation is that, unlike other labialized phonemes in PIE, *h₃ was an aspirate and therefore particularly prone to erosion compared to the more acoustically salient labialized stops: *kʷ, *gʷ and *ghʷ.

    PIE Uvulars: A revised solution of their origin

  • Rob: "As for *h3, it may have been labialized, although other labial(ized) phonemes do not seem to cause o-coloring (at least not consistently)."

    PIE Uvulars: A revised solution of their origin

  • As for *h3, it may have been labialized, although other labial(ized) phonemes do not seem to cause o-coloring (at least not consistently).

    PIE Uvulars: A revised solution of their origin

  • Tropylium: "You've probably covered this somewhere before, but, any particular reason you reconstruct *H3 as a labialized glottal, not uvular like *H2?"

    Update of my "Diachrony of Pre-IE" document

  • My phonology isn't much different in Mid IE than in PIE, save for the addition of labialized dental stops and sibilants and the absence of a phonemic plain/uvular contrast or palatal/plain for you traditionalists out there.

    Update of my "Diachrony of Pre-IE" document

  • If this ablaut preceded Centralization, we would find verb stems alternating between labialized (eg. *kʷ) and non-labialized consonants (eg. *k).

  • However, since Centralization and the concommitant transfer of labialization from the vowel to the neighbouring consonant is naturally heavily dependant on vocalism, I would have to oppose i-umlaut at the Proto-Steppe stage unless you can find a different formulation of Centralization that works to explain the rise of labialized consonants in PIE.

  • You've probably covered this somewhere before, but, any particular reason you reconstruct *H3 as a labialized glottal, not uvular like *H2?

    Update of my "Diachrony of Pre-IE" document

  • This is also the point at which labialized stops first surface in the language.
