LIGN 111 — Phonology UCSD, Winter 2010 Prof. Bakovi ć p. 1 of 2 Sample problem set: Phonemic analysis of Sierra Popoluca * 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 super- ficial changes to correct for some of this; any remaining inconsistencies are not significant. Aspiration is a predictable aspect of the pronunciation of voiceless stops in Sierra Popoluca. De- termine what rule(s) underlie(s) the distribution of this feature. These transcriptions show only as much phonetic detail as is relevant to this problem; [c] represents a voiceless palato-alveolar stop, and the glottal stop [ ʔ ] is always unaspirated (it is neither voiceless nor voiced.) 1. [pet ʰ kuj] ‘broom’ 10. [hu ː c ʰ ] ‘where’ 2. [pet ː a ː p ʰ ] ‘it is being swept’ 11. [ikapun] ‘his barrow’ 3. [kek ʰ pa ʔ ] ‘it flies’ 12. [ti ː t ː it ʰ ] ‘mestizo’ 4. [kek ː ak ʰ pa ʔ ] ‘it flies again’ 13. [n ɨ p ʰ
