Abstract:

With a database of over 180 languages and dialects, this book proposes
a typology of the phonological patterning of ejectives, drawing
together widely-scattered information. A small number of autosegmental
operations in phonology such as spreading, deletion, fusion, and
fission, constrained by a hierarchical, constriction-based feature
geometry, accounts for the major processes which ejectives undergo.
Individual chapters detail the spread of ejection through
assimilation, the delinking of laryngeal features through
deglottalization, the delinking of place features through
debucallization, the dissimilation of ejectives through fission. Each
chapter includes theoretical issues of representation, and extensive
documentation of both synchronic alterations and diachronic changes,
along with a consideration of the phonetic motivations of the
phenomenon in question.
