Labiodental ɱ in Drubea

Labiodental ɱ in Drubea Abstract: While labiodental (ɱ) occurs frequently across the world's languages as a predictable nasal allophone before labiodental fricatives (f) and (v), a new source for the same segment not previously reported elsewhere is described here. In Drubea, it arises through nasal spreading from a nasal vowel to a preceding oral fricative. While partly assimilatory in nature, we see that it is also partially dissimilatory in effect with greater segmental consequences than usually associated with the appearance of (ɱ) in the world's languages. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Oceanic Linguistics University of Hawai'I Press
