Proto-Oceanic *kw

Proto-Oceanic *kw This paper argues for the reconstruction of a rounded velar protophoneme *k<sup>w</sup> in Proto-Oceanic. This protophoneme occurred, however, in few lexical items. In those reconstructed to date, it always appears before *a and always, with one possible exception, word-initially. The paper concludes with a discussion of the probable status of *k<sup>w</sup> in Proto-Oceanic. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Oceanic Linguistics University of Hawai'I Press

Abstract

This paper argues for the reconstruction of a rounded velar protophoneme *k<sup>w</sup> in Proto-Oceanic. This protophoneme occurred, however, in few lexical items. In those reconstructed to date, it always appears before *a and always, with one possible exception, word-initially. The paper concludes with a discussion of the probable status of *k<sup>w</sup> in Proto-Oceanic.
