Chapter Summary

This appendix section presents an acoustic analysis of some of the phonetic structures of Anong. Data are discussed in terms of both variability and comparison to the traditional articulatory descriptions given by Sun. The vowel system is examined from three angles: First, the vowels are located in acoustic space. Second, the acoustic patterns of raised and nasalized vowels are examined in detail. And, third, possible influence of Lisu on the Anong vowel system is discussed. A particular interest of this study is in the phonetic reality behind two phonemic contrasts: a three-way laryngeal contrast of voiceless aspirated, voiceless unaspirated, voiced stops and a three-way coronal contrast of alveolar, retroflex and alveolo-palatal fricatives and affricates.

Keywords: acoustic analysis; Anong; Lisu; phonetic structures; Sun; vowel system
