Hi everybody

I have a question about the phonological/phonetic status of releasing vs.
nonreleasing of stops in the coda position. Does anyone out there know a
language showing minimal pairs which are exclusively based on the
releasing vs. non-releasing of coda stops?
In some languages, it is basically optional (English). In other
languages coda stops are strictly unreleased (Korean) or released
(French). But I failed to find out a language in which releasing vs.
non-releasing produces a meaning difference. I highly doubt there would
be a language like that. If somebody know a language like that, please
let me know.

Thanks a million in advance

Bonjour,

I'd like to know if anyone could help me finding an e-version
of the Nebrija's Dictionnary of Spanish.
Thanks,
Marc

Dear members of Linguist List
I have been tring to gain some understanding of Kwakiutl/Kwakwala by
reading F. Boas's grammar, but this has turned out to be unexpectedly
difficult. Is there a more accessible grammar or maybe a grammatical
sketch of this language? Thanks in advance.
