And the verb is from the abstract root pói which roughl...

Re: A Question About Interrogatives

I think I have heard both strategies, but usually the no(t)-strategy is more common. Note also that in many languages so-called tag-questions are not the main strategy for polar questions.

Re: Clusters of Stops

Is it true that a cluster of coda stops will have the further-back PoA before the further-front PoA unless there’s a following vowel? And a cluster of onset stops will have the further-front PoA before the further-back PoA unless there’s a preceding vowel? If either of those is not an absolute univ...

Re: Clusters of Stops

IIRC, the generalization in German is that a coda stop cluster can only end in an alveolar stop and coda stops cannot have the same PoA. I heard an explanation based on markedness. Alveolar stops are least marked, therefore they are allowed in that position. I think a similar generalization might ho...

Re: Using PBase to research sound change

C0 in some notations also means at least 0 consonants (maximally 1 is implied usually), i.e. the consonant is optional. That would make sense for the Afar pattern, if I recall the data correctly. Not sure about the specific notation in PBase though.

Wikipedia's coverage of Paradisec as a source is very irregular. The data are original, if that helps. I got them from a speaker myself.
