The Phonetic Structures of KalanguyaPaul Julian SantiagoUniversity of the Philippines Dilimanpaul.santiago@yahoo.comABSTRACTThis paper examines the phonetic structures of Kalanguya, an Austronesian language spoken in Northern Philippines. This study uses static palatography to determine the articulatory positions of four coronal consonants and acoustic analysis to describe some characteristics of certain salient sounds in Kalanguya. Some remarkable findings of this study are as follows: (a) the places of articulation of coronal consonants /t/, /d/, /l/ and /n/ are at dental and alveolar regions. (b) The glottal consonant /h/ can be considered as a true fricative and compensates for the lack of /s/ in Kalanguya. (c) The voiced bilabial stop /b/ is labialized [b]. (d) The voiceless plosive /k/ in Kalanguya is uvular [q], which is quite rare in Austronesian languages. (e) Finally, there are four vowel sounds in Kalanguya: one front vowel [], two central [a] and [], and one back vowel []. Moreover, Kalanguya vowel inventory has no internal symmetry in terms of F1 and F2 measurements and gender differences and syllable stress have no effects on vowel height and frontness.Keywords: acoustics and articulatory phonetics, static palatography, Kalanguya, Austronesian, uvular consonants1.
