Dear all,

I am a PhD student in the final stages of dissertation writing and am
urgently looking for Amharic speakers to check several examples concerning
Amharic Causatives. The examples mostly concern semantic restrictions on
the Subject of Causative verbs. I would very much appreciate your help.

Subject: Consonant effects on pitch

Dear Linguists,

There have been numerous studies on the effect that consonant types have on
the pitch of a preceding/following vowel in English. For instance, Hombert
(& others) have shown that voiceless stops raise the F0 of a following
vowel, while voiced stops lower it.

Does anyone have any references for these types of effects in other
languages? Or other consonant types?

Full references would be appreciated; actual papers or links to papers
would be greatly appreciated, too.
