Chapter Summary

A number of consonants in this list are occasionally found in words of Aramaic origin, where they have developed by phonetic processes, no doubt facilitated by their existence in the contact languages. This often results in emphatic stops in words of Aramaic origin losing their velarization and being pronounced as simple unaspirates. Various types of assimilations take place between consonants. Not all of these are represented in the transcription. Total assimilation sometimes occurs between two adjacent consonants, resulting in a geminated consonant. In contexts where this is a sporadic phenomenon and does not occur systematically, it is not represented in the transcription.
