Labio-Patalization in Twi: Contrastive, Quantal, and Organizational Factors Producing an Uncommon Sound.
de Jong, Kenneth; Obeng, Samuel Gyasi
Language, v76 n3 p682-703 Sep 2000
Proposes that the typologically uncommon combination of labial and palatal constriction in Twi has arisen from a convergence created by general patterns of coarticulation of consonants and vowels. This convergence has been systematized in a consonantal acoustic dimension partially independent from the original vocalic dimensions of contrast for which the rounding and palatial articulations were specified.
