Notes[edit]

  1. ^ a b c d In the contemporary dialect, the voiced plosives /b/ and /d/ are devoiced to [p] and [t] in the syllable coda. In the traditional dialect however, they tend to stay voiced [b, d].
  2. ^ a b c d The phoneme /r/ has the following allophones:
    • Pre-vocalic /r/ is realized as either a uvular trill [ʀ] (in the contemporary dialect) or an alveolar trill [r] (in the traditional dialect);
    • After vowels, the non-prevocalic /r/ is realized as a non-syllabic low vowel [ɐ̯];
    • The sequence /ər/ is realized a syllabic low vowel [ɐ].
  3. ^ a b In the contemporary dialect /s/ before a consonant tends to be retracted to [ʃ]. In the traditional dialect however, a preconsonantal /s/ is realized simply as [s].
  4. ^ After [u] and diphthongs ending in [u], /v/ is realized as [w].
  5. ^ /ə/ occurs only in unstressed syllables.
