An Areal Study of Nasalization in Chinese
Chen, Matthew Y.
Journal of Chinese Linguistics, 3, 1, 16-59, Jan 75
From a survey of over a thousand "diapoints" emerges a clear distributional pattern of nasal vowels in the contemporary dialects of China. They tend to occupy the lower portion of the vowel space. Three hypotheses are proposed to explain this phenomenon and each hypothesis is examined against a broad data base. (Author/TL)
