Subject: Sichuan Yi

I'm looking for information on the phonology of Sichuan/liangshan Yi. I'm
specifically interested in the IPA of the language; is there an accepted
standard IPA or just individual interpretations?

I'm also looking for any digital recording files of the language that
someone could send to my computer.

I've been compiling a swadish list for this language and have run into
disagreements between sources on words usually a vs. ax or e vs. yi. if
anyone has an explaination for this I would be interested.

I'm really interested in this language and would just like to learn all I
can about it, in all fields not only phonology.

thank you

With references to the sentences having non-finite embedded clause as
illustrated below:

Having eaten his lunch the boy left for the school

Can anyone inform me about the references in Head-Driven Phrase Structure
Grammar (or any other framework) that accounts for the above case?
