Rule details

Vowel Stretching


Synchronic phonological


V_1 V_2 > V_1 V_2 ʔ V_2


Goddard notes that this applies to word-final or penultimate vowel pairs. Leman's written rule looks very different from Goddard's because he includes that while the vowel height and backness are copied from the second vowel in the pair, the pitch is copied from the first. Due to formatting limitations, I am unable to represent that in the rule field here.
