LIGN 111 — Phonology UCSD, Winter 2010 Prof. Bakovi ć p. 1 of 2 Sample problem set: Phonemic analysis of Greenlandic Eskimo * Note : This problem set, like some others we’ll see, comes from a secondary source that did not use the IPA and in which there were some transcriptional inconsistencies. I’ve made a few superficial changes to correct for some of this; any remaining inconsistencies are not significant. There are five phonetic vowels in Greenlandic Eskimo, but only three phonemic ones. What are they? Propose a rule (or rules) that relates the phonemic vowels to the phonetic ones. 1. [ivnaq] ‘bluff’ 12. [qasaloq] ‘bark’ 2. [ipe ʀ aq] ‘harpoon strap’ 13. [ikusik] ‘elbow’ 3. [imaq] ‘sea’ 14. [qilaluvaq] ‘white whale’ 4. [tuluvaq] ‘raven’ 15. [qati ɡ ak] ‘back’ 5. [itumaq] ‘palm of hand’ 16. [sakiak] ‘rib’ 6. [sava] ‘sheep’ 17. [u ɡ sik] ‘cow’ 7. [nuna] ‘land’ 18.

    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.
