Example text

Chew [ˇceu] ([i ] and [u ] are used for high vocoids which constitute the least prominent member in a diphthong). In all cases the high vowels and the glides are less prominent than the adjacent non-high vowels. Nevertheless, the high vowels in (a) are more prominent than the glides in (b). i and u in (a) are part of the vocalic nucleus of the syllable, whereas y and w in (b) are not. This will suffice to show that high vowels and corresponding glides are phonemically distinct before non-high vowels.

Chapter 25 presents a coherent survey of both person and aspect markers. The fillers of the slots 1–36 are discussed in detail in chapter 26. The number of the subsections corresponds with the slot number of the suffixes under discussion. For an inventory of the slot fillers I refer to the table of contents. Syntactic relations are expressed by verbal suffixes and, to some extent, by word order. A verb can occur without any noun phrase. There are no more than two noun phrases which are coreferential with a person marker in a single verb form.

The Mapocho dialect, spoken in the area which the Spanish had conquered in an early stage, has long been extinct. The dialects which survived are the dialects which were spoken in the area between the rivers B´ıo-B´ıo and Tolt´en, the former Araucan´ıa, and the dialects further south. The Argentinian Mapuche variety was brought there by Mapuche from the former Araucan´ıa. The Chilean and Argentinian Mapuche varieties bear a strong linguistic similarity. Names and dialects Missionaries who studied and described the Mapuche language referred to the ¨ngu or Chili dugu.
