MULL-lab, 2/2 – Willie Myers

The MULL-lab will be on Wednesday, February 2nd at 4pm. Willie Myers will be presenting Nasals, Glides and Complex Onsets in Kirundi. Please see the abstract below.


This talk presents three phonology puzzles based on preliminary fieldwork in Kirundi. The first puzzle examines NC clusters with a focus on nasal + voiceless stop clusters (which are commonly prohibited in Bantu languages). The second puzzle looks at the distribution of glides in the language. The third puzzle brings these two nasals and glides together to analyze Kirundi’s complex onset clusters – unexpected based on Proto-Bantu’s traditional (C)V syllable structure.
