Chapter Summary

This chapter describes the phonology of the Tshangla language, beginning with segmental phonology, (the consonants and vowels), proceeding on to the syllable structure and possible sequences of consonants and vowels, and then on to word structure and stress patterns. A brief observation is made about a possibly emerging lexical tone contrast. The chapter shows all consonant phonemes. It lists each contrastive consonant phoneme with a description of its phonetic characteristics. There are five monopthong vowels in Tshangla, that are discussed in the chapter. The vast majority of non-derived (monomorphemic) Tshangla lexemes are either monosyllabic or disyllabic.

Keywords: consonant phonemes; contrastive lexical tone; monopthong vowels; phonology; Tshangla lexemes; Tshangla syllable structure
