Canonically Long and Geminate Vowels in Chimila (Chibchan).
Malone, Terry
Southwest Journal of Linguistics, v20 n1 p71-117 2001
Claims that Chimila includes both canonically long monosyllabic vowels within it phonological system. Discusses this claim on the basis of a combination of evidence, including contrasts in identical or near-identical environments, phonetic length differences, the interaction of stress and pitch patterns, vowel shortening processes, distributional restrictions on neighboring consonantal segments, and morphological processes.
