Evidence for this in spoken Iwaidja comes not only from analysis of pitch accent placement (Birch 2000), but also from observations regarding variation in the quality of vowels, which tend to be peripheralised in accented syllables, and centralised or deleted in metrically weak syllables (Birch 2002a).

, as when lengthened.
Will we be the "new" university peripheralised
by the "proper" universities?
