Davis (2003) means that the tension development of languages like Selkup don't unavoidably argue opposed to the moraic concept of geminates, quite, from an optimality-theoretic point of view, the trend could be a final result of convinced high-ranking tension constraints that experience the impact of ignoring the bimoraicity of any CVC syllable. See Davis (2003: ninety five) for elaboration. Hayes (1995a) notes that Cahuilla CVC syllables closed by means of glottal stops also are handled as bimoraic, notwithstanding now not different CVC syllables. during this mild, it really is worthy recalling the Ngalakgan facts in (15) which constitutes a nearly contrary trend to Cahuilla in closed syllables wherein syllables closed by means of geminates and people closed by means of a glottal cease are left out for tension and hence act as monomoraic whereas different CVC syllables 138 28 29 30 Stuart Davis (at least these the place the coda has its personal position good points) are handled as bimoraic. on the way to retain the moraic conception of geminates, given the Ngalakgan rigidity facts, one would have to preserve that, underlyingly, Ngalakgan geminates are certainly moraic; that's they've got the underlying moraic constitution in (21d); they only don't floor as moraic as a result of a constraint that calls for moraic parts to have their very own position good points. during this method, Cahuilla geminates might replicate their underlying moraic constitution whereas Ngalakgan geminates don't. With appreciate to the problem in Cahuilla of a syllable closed by means of a glottal cease being handled as heavy, it can be attainable to view this as reflecting a sonority threshold situation on what may be moraic. it's famous that glottal variety consonants can both trend as hugely sonorous parts or as obstruents although this has no longer been a lot mentioned within the literature, yet see Churma and Shi (1995) and Parker (2002). This variable habit might be understood as to if a language treats the laryngeal articulator as a spot of articulation within the vocal tract or as simply reflecting a specific country of the glottis. on the subject of the latter, the laryngeal consonant will be a sonorant on account that there will be a loose stream of air within the vocal tract. if so for Cahuilla, then it can offer an engaging case the place moraic codas are both hugely sonorous consonants (glottal stops) or a geminate. this kind of mixture of moraic codas could be understood via Morén’s (1999, 2000) contrast among coerced weight and certain weight. See notice 33 for dialogue in this contrast. a truly fascinating case of a language within which CVV and CVG syllables trend including admire to emphasize is San’ani (Yemen) Arabic as defined through Watson (2002: 81–82) who particularly notes their patterning jointly in place of CVC syllables. during this language, pressure falls at the rightmost non-final CVV or CVG syllable within the observe. If there aren't any such syllables (and ignoring a potential ultimate superheavy syllable), then rigidity falls at the rightmost non-final CVC syllable as much as the antepenultimate syllable; differently, it falls at the leftmost CV syllable.
