The duration of a closed syllable rhyme was calculated by measuring the duration of the vowel and the part of the geminate
consonant or consonant cluster preceding the syllable boundary.
The former concurs with the statement that reduplicated consonants indicate geminate
(long) consonants also in closed unstressed syllables.
A new Eastern Pacific labrid (Pisces), Decodon melasma, a geminate
species of the western Atlantic D.
in the nominative is longer than in the genitive or illative.
The two species appear to provide yet another example of an Indo-Pacific geminate
Alvestad and Edzard explain that Modern Hebrew adopted the morphology of Tiberian (Biblical) Hebrew but not its phonology, so there is no distinction between short and long vowels or simple and geminate
Careful analysis of the data shows that consonant deletion will occur when there is a geminate
That part of the grammar provides a description of Late Middle English shifts of quantity, including geminate
simplification, metatheses, distant assimilation and dissimilation, various qualitative changes, including modifications of word-final homorganic clusters, loss of consonants with velar articulation ([x, 1, r]), continuations of earlier changes, haplology, transformations in the sequence consonant + [j] leading to the rise of new palatal sounds, loss of plosives in certain consonant sequences, loss of [h], modifications of the initial clusters with [w].
were previously screened to evaluate their ability to geminate
at low (10[degrees]C), moderate (30[degrees]C), and high (40[degrees]C) temperature.
Since stressed vowels preceding geminates
are short, it must be that the first element of the geminate
closes the syllable containing the short stressed vowel, and the second element is the onset of the following syllable.
This paper is based on our own Votic data only, thus we transcribe the comitative with a short vowel, and the terminative with a geminate
and a long vowel.
Out of sight, out of mind: high cryptic diversity obscures the identities and histories of geminate
species in the marine bivalve subgenus A car.
Stringente anche l'omofonia orizzontale che attraversa l'intera poesia, cui la marcata presenza di geminate
conferisce un ritmo incalzante e via via piu sofferto data l'insistenza con cui la dentale (-T) innerva la trama sonora delle ultime strofe.
Katamba and Hyman (1991) show that in Luganda Meinhof's Rule will simplify a nasal + voiced stop to a geminate
nasal only if the voiced stop belongs to the stem.
The forms containing a geminate
consonant, frequently attested in the analysed corpus, can be attributed precisely to the influence of ja-stems, in which the stem formative occasions doubling of the root final consonant in line with the process of West Germanic Gemination, e.
