The Cantonese Final: An Exercise in Indigenous Analysis
Light, Timothy
Journal of Chinese Linguistics, 5, 1, 75-102, Jan 77
The traditional division of the Chinese syllable into initial, final, and tone is examined. Distributional criteria are used to justify this analysis as more applicable to the Cantonese syllable than strict segmental analysis. A detailed analysis of the Cantonese final is given and implications for cross-language analyses are discussed. (CHK)
