Name ____________________________________ Linguistics 304 / 504 / Anthro 317 Graded homework #1 due 11 March 2008 Please write your answers in the spaces provided. Write rules in the format requested as far as possible. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, assume that sounds have the feature values shown in the feature chart on the handout. The assignment has 100 points total. 1. (22 pts) Features. Here is an inventory of the consonants in Karok (Hokan language family), spoken in northern California. (Source: Maddieson, 1984) For the features we are currently using, [ s_d ] has the same values as [ T ]. Bilabial Labio- dental Dental Alveolar Palato- alveolar Palatal Velar Glottal Oral stops p t k ? Fricatives B f s_d s S x h Affricates tS Nasals m n Flap 4 Central approx. j List all of the consonants from the inventory above that are specified by the following sets of features. Example: [-cont, -voice] ___[ p, t, k, ? ] ____ a. [ +son, - nas ] [ 4 ? h j ] b. [ C ORONAL , +cont ] [ s1 s S 4 ] c. [ -cons ] [ ? h j ] d. [ D ORSAL , -voice ] [ k x ] Using the same inventory of Karok consonants, give a feature specification that uniquely identifies each of the following sets of consonants (excluding all other consonants in the language), using as few features as possible . In this question, do not be concerned with distinguishing consonants from vowels. Hint: no set requires more than 3 features. In some cases more than one answer is possible. Remember that a dependent feature can only be used with its head feature. Example: [ m n ] ___[+nasal] ____ e. [ ? h ] [ -cons, -voice ] f. [ f s_d s S x h ] [ +cont, -voice] g. [ B m ] [ *lab, +voice]
