ENGL Linguistic talks: Germanic laryngeal phonology and phonetics
Germanic laryngeal phonology and phonetics
Joe Salmons (University of Wisconsin-Madison)
Visiting ENGL 4144: Phonology (taught by Dr. Joe Eska firstname.lastname@example.org)
October 14, 11.15am-12:05pm.
About: In English, consonants like "p" and "b" are typically described as differing in "voicing" (glottal tension). Salmons looks at evidence across a number of Germanic languages, and argues for a "laryngeal realism" approach, where we instead describe these consonants as primarily differing in glottal width.
