Title:The voiced linguolabial plosive in Kajoko
Abstract:In this paper we present video and acoustic documentation of a voiced linguolabial plosive in Kajoko (Guinea-Bissau), in which the front part of the tongue blade makes contact with the inner surface of the upper lip. The sound functions as a labial in Kajoko, contrary to the Articulator Model's prediction that it should be classified as a coronal. It replaces /b/ in the consonant system, and it contrasts with the other labial phonemes and /d/. Sound correspondences with /b/ in Bubaque demonstrate that the linguolabial plosive derived historically from *b. In addition, Crioulo /b/ is borrowed into Kajoko as the linguolabial plosive.
