Linguistic Assignment


Assignment #2 Due Nov 3rd Grades for assignment #1 were based on: 1.) How consistent you were with your diacritics. 2.) How in-depth you went into marking up your text. Did you use: allophonic labialization (rounding), palatalization, nasalization, velarization, dentalization, half-lengthening, full lengthening, devoicing, aspiration, unreleased stops, breathy voice, taps, the correct use of schwas, double diacritics (tʰʷuː]) (stress was appreciated by not counted against you if you didn't mark it)? 3.)

I only want you to redo Article number 2 in a different dialect/ language. Pay attention to the following format: 1.) Provide a revised version of Article 2 from your original assignment containing all of the corrections. Under that, tell me the name of the dialect you're attempting. Then provide me with the transcription. *Note* please use font size 16 and provide each word in brackets

[wɜ˞d]̚. Use the Linux Libertine font we installed earlier in the course. After this, make note of every sound change you implemented (with a brief explanation no longer than a sentence.

You need only show each sound change once. E.g., if you have the word nurse [nɜ˞s], I don't need to see that [ɜ˞] becomes [ɜɹ̃ː] again (because you already showed me with word (above!). See the following example/ layout:
