1 Introduction to Linguistics Homework 5 (100 points) Due Monday, July 12 th at the beginning of class (Don’t forget to transcribe your name! – 2 pts.) The following words are from Greenlandic Eskimo, a language related to the Inuit languages spoken in the very northern parts of North America. Five vowels appear in this set of data: [ ɑ ], [ e ], [ i ], [ o ], and [ u ]. But there are only three vowel phonemes in this language: two of those phonemic vowels each have two different allophones. Your task is to determine what the phonemic vowels of Greenlandic Eskimo are, and which of the vowels in our data set are allophones of the same phoneme. Note that [ ʀ ] in these examples represents a uvular trill, and that [ q ] represents a voiceless uvular stop. (1) Greenlandic Eskimo vowels 1. [ ivnɑq ] ‘bluff’ 13. [ qɑsɑloq ] ‘bark’ 2. [ ipeʀɑq] ‘harpoon strap’ 14. [ ikusik ] ‘elbow’ 3. [ imɑq ] ‘sea’ 15. [ qilɑluvɑq ] ‘white whale’ 4. [ tuluvɑq ] ‘raven’
