[i] and [ I ] are both high front unrounded vowels; [ I ] is found in word-final position and before the voiceless uvular stop [q]; [i] is found elsewhere. Because [i] and [ I ] are found in complementary distribution and are phonetically similar, we may assume they are both allophones of the same phoneme (/i/).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
