  • Comanche Consonant Mutation Initial Association or Feature Spread? 

    Armagost, James L. (University of Kansas. Linguisitcs Graduate Student Association, 1989-01-01)
    Comanche initially appears to exhibit a slightly skewed but typical variety of consonant mutation for which one should expect an insightful floating feature analysis if claims for this approach are valid. I attempt such ...
