An alternative is to treat the Puɭɭi grapheme as a complete representation of a ‘dull syllable’ i.e. அவன் ɑvɑn ɑvæ̃ ɑvɑn (2nd per.M.sing Nom அம்மா ɑmmɑ mother If so, are there any compensatory devices which are reflected in the syllable inventories of these languages? If one takes the traditional view of syllable structure, the script has elements of the alphabetic and syllabic systems. 90. மிருகம் miruxɑm miruxõ miruxɑm animal மண்•டி man•di sediment/dreɡs ஈ iː fly (insect) 1.1.1. To bring to an end by action; to perform In this dissertation this assumption has been used as a touchstone in exploring the question of word-end consonants and geminate consonants. Section II is largely devoted to martialing the data relevant to syllable structure in Tamil. உ•டம்•பு u•ʈɑm•bɨ body முலை mulai breast 20%. Words which lack any word-internal consonant clusters ( ie a sequence of CV syllables) will therefore consist merely of a sequence of class 2 graphemes. sequences (i.e. Ku: ɲu: cu: ŋu: ʈu: ɳu: t̪u: n̪ u: pu: mu: yu: ʀu: லூ வூ ழூ ளூ றூ னூ அடிமை    ɑʈimai       ɑʈime       ɑʈimai          slave மரணம் mɑrɑnɑm mɑrɑnõ mɑrɑnɑm death 15). labh தொகுப்பு t̪oxuppɨ classification 225.

As explained in section, class 1 graphemes are never used word internally, suggesting that Tamil bars V•V hiatus. 18 85. 1.2.0 Tamil Language உணவு uɳɑvu oɳɘvɨ uɳɑvɨ food Particularly strong evidence comes from dialect differences in syllable typology. This view seems to be embodied in the syllabic writing systems of many Eastern languages. நடித்தல் nɑʈit̪tɑl actinɡ (gerund) 190. note. ஈர் iːr iːrɨ iːr louse 62. Typically, the nucleus is a vowel (V), and the onset and coda are consonantal (C). கிளவன் kiɭɑvɑn keɭavæ̃ kiɭavɑn old man காது ka:ðɨ ka:ðɨ ka:ðɨ ear LT clearly allows word end nasals, liquids and glides though not obstruent stops. 198. We may well expect dialectical differences in this position to be relevant to an assessment of the final onset view of word end consonants. And finally, in view of the obstruent lenition data, is the pulli grapheme used here to indicate the fact that the word internal lenition of obstruent-stops is ‘blocked’, allowing a ‘strong’consonant realisation with lexical contrast? In Tamil, length contrasts in vowels and consonants appear to be independent of each other for obstruent stops, but not for sonorants. Skr. 14. 86. Here, again on the conventional derivational view, epenthesis involves an apparent gemination (C insertion) of the word final C in addition to /ɨ/ epenthesis: CVC1  CVC1C1ɨ. Consonant clusters in Tamil may be: 119. தொக்கை t̪ okkɑi thick An explanation may be put forward on the basis of the common observation in LT that the word-end consonant in short-vowel monosyllabic free roots appears to be held for a perceptibly longer period than in intervocalic single consonants or in word-end consonants in long-vowel equivalents. கீ ஙீ சீ ஞீ டீ ணீ தீ நீ பீ மீ யீ ரீ This implies that the internal syllables are in fact not closed and so explains why there is no ‘closed syllable shortening’. 219. They usually start with the rhotic ர் or the palatal retroflex approximant ழ் (usually realised as ɭ). The extra consonantal segment here may originate as part of suffixal word level morphology as explained in section 3.5.1. கல் kɑl kɑllɨ kɑllɨ stone This tendency is less strong in JT: the word final nasals |m|, |ɳ| and |n| are usually retained as word final segments in surface forms, as is |r|. Words which begin with onset-less syllables start with a class 1 grapheme (V, VV or V1V2), and words which end with sonorant consonant segment or a glide will terminate in a class 3 grapheme). Word-medial C clusters require the interposing of a class 3 grapheme between two class 2 graphemes or between a leading class 1 grapheme and a following class 2 grapheme. கட்டிடம் kɑʈʈiʈɑm buildinɡ ஏலம் eːlɑm yeːlõ eːlɑm cardamom How is this tendency to be explained? 76. (1985) Routledge, London, New York, Andronov M.S. The data relating to these and the implications for syllabification are discussed in detail in later sections. அளு ɑɭu ɑɭɨ ɑɭɨ weep For nasals at word-end, loss of the stop element leaves behind nasality as the only remaining segmental feature, but this can be manifest allophonically as ‘nasalisation’ of the preceding vowel. Vowel length contrast You are bound to learn to understand other people and to meet all life difficulties with joyful heart. If one takes the stand that lenition targets weak syllable positions independently of segmental quality, this observation may be construed as evidence for the final onset view in the sense that it unifies word internal onsets with word-end consonants. பரிதாபம் pɑriθaːβɑm pɑriθaːbõ pɑriθaːβɑm pathos Not all countries that have shown an interest in the name are listed in the bar graph. 89. on, to put on; to don; to do off, to take off, as dress; to doff; to do 1.1.2 Syllable structure and sonority ISSN: 0956-7194. In the case of obstruent geminates with preceding short vowels, the leading consonant represented by the ‘puɭɭi’ grapheme could be parsed either as a coda consonant of a heavy closed syllable or as a dull syllable preceded by a light syllable. 166. நட nɑʈɑ nɑʈɑ nɑʈɑ walk (imp.) This raises the possibility that pulli graphemes of obstruent stops may in fact be part of a complex (geminate) onset of the following syllable, but this loses the strong generalisation that Tamil does not have complex onsets. மீன் mi:n mi:nɨ mi:n fish (noun) 13. Consider first words ending in the nasals |m|, |n| and |ɳ| in examples 135-143 This severely limits the number of phonemic vowel sounds, often to five or less. 50. To succeed; to avail; to answer the purpose; to serve; as, However, our data sets show that there are also free forms, apparently without any morpheme boundaries visible to phonology, which are of the form (C)V:C:V where Tamil orthography and modern grammatical transliterations represent the long consonants as geminates. An alternative analysis is presented in section III). It may also explain why JT allows word-final consonants after long vowels but not after short vowels in monosyllabic free roots, if we assume that the former have the form CVV•C0• and the latter the form CVC• C0•, and that the latter syllable sequences is highly marked and regularly appears only in LT. நடித்தல் nɑʈit̪tɑl nɑʈit̪tɑl nɑʈit̪tɑl actinɡ 54. The one observation that seems to fall outside this generalisation is related to the sonorant geminate, the leading ‘pulli’ segment of which does seem to close the preceding syllable, as suggested by the fact that long vowels are not attested in the relevant nucleus (See 3.5.2.). கே ஙே சே ஞே டே ணே தே நே பே மே யே ரே Traditionally, syllabification is taken as a process of mapping from the lexically specified segment strings of words or utterances onto a syllable sequence. Do definition Noun. The graphemic representation of long consonants may therefore appear to reflect a view that they are composed of two sequential segments. 151. 181. This alternative view would allow the writing system to be seen as fully syllabic, if we take every instance where a Puɭɭi grapheme appears as representing the presence of a dull syllable (C0). 2.1.3. The colloquial variety of spoken Tamil in mainland South India and described in the reference sources used here (Schiffman, 1999; Asher 1985) is referred to as Spoken Tamil (ST). 92. ம•ர•ணம் mɑ•rɑ•nɑm death பால் paːl paːlɨ paːl milk 217. In speech production and perception, this property also divides categorically, there being at most only binary contrast. 148. 126. These single C segments are represented in the writing system as the initial part of the compound (class 2) graphemes each of which represent a unique CV, CVV or CV1V2 sequence. 186. தொகை t̪ oxɑi amount 164. 110. It has been noted in previous accounts of the grammar of Tamil (Krishnamurti, 2003) that in free roots or words derived by root level morphology, the preference is for forms with three morae which is achieved by the following restricted set of syllable strings: (C)V:•CV / (C)VC•CV / (C)V•CV•CV. Alternatively, we could claim that the ‘pulli’ graphemes stand for a dull syllable (C0 ) both word finally and word internally. ம•னை•வி mɑ•nɑi•vi wife These qualitative restrictions and their alignments/misalignments are well exemplified in the case of Tamil. onset-less syllables (V), CV syllables and the dull syllable (C0) respectively. All the orthographically represented long vowels except the diphthong |au| are attested at the word final position. 3.5.3. 64. தம்•பி t̪ɑm•bi younɡer brother Sri Lanka dates back a thousand years or more.
