Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about various concepts, including consonants, ClAram BGDKPT consonants, pharyngeals and glottals, affricates, the emphatic (pharyngealized) pronounciation, and assimilation. Stress in JChalla is mainly penultimate and follows that described in detail by Mutzafi for JBetan. It will be marked only when it deviates from the penultima. Two pausal forms of numbers are attested, both of which take an excrescent glottal stop: xa' 'one' and tre' 'two'.

Keywords:affricates; glottals; pharyngeals; phonology
