L�ngua matis (pano): uma an�lise fonol�gica

VIT�RIA REGINA SPANGHERO FERREIRA Universidad de CAMPINAS

The following study shows a phonetic and phonological report of the
Matis language, belonging to the Pano family whose population lives in
the state of Amazonas.

This work consist of six chapters, conclusion and a bibliography. The
first chapter shows a brief introduction, presents the methodology
applied in the field to collect the linguistic material used in this
study and the methodology of linguistic analysis.

The second chapter shows a detailed report of the Matis people, their
geographical position and some aspects concerning their language and
culture, and a brief discussion of the studies about the Pano
linguistic family. The third chapter defines the phonemes and the
allophones of the language through the traditional analysis such as
minimum pair, analogous pair, complementary distribution and free
variation.

>From the fourth chapter on our study was guided mainly by the
non-linear phonological theories. On this chapter we covered the Matis
syllable structure, taking into consideration the syllable, syllable
standards, the language syllable process, the ambivalent sequences,
and we classified the phonemes in natural classes according to the
feature geometrical theory.

The fifth chapter analyse the phonological processes which occur in
the language: fusion, nasal assimilation, lenition and tapping,
neutralization and vowel deletion. The last chapter deals with the
stress pattern. [Written in Portuguese]
