Example text

As can be seen in (45) below, Hayata (1973) points out that polysyllabic words with the initial R in My6gi-sh6 are problematic. (45) "Polysyllabic words with the "rising" mark are problematic and might be accounted for in various ways. Some outstanding illustrative examples are discussed here. siwoni [RHH] 'aster' and goma [RH] 'sesame' are Chinese loan words. The rather unusual form Ngoma is found as well as the more common form goma [RH] in the Ruiju[-] my6gi[-]sh6, where N represents a grapheme interpreted as a syllabic nasal.

When it comes to the reconstruction of phonetic pitch shapes for the reconstructed accent categories, Hattori's methodology is even more mysterious. In Hattori (1951), he does not reveal how he assigns the phonetic values to each accent category, but shows how the pitch shapes change from PJ 28 to the modem dialects of Tokyo, Kyoto, Morioka, Takamatsu, and Kagoshima (see (13) below). Although Hattori shows the development of the pitch shapes for accentual categories, it is not certain how he comes up with the pitch shapes for the PJ accent categories on the basis of the correspondences below.

For fRlL(L), fRlLL(L), and f RHH(H), he mentions Hayata (1973) in which hagi 'leg', eyami 'epidemic', and siwoni 'aster' are described as fRlL(L)JRlLL(L), and fRHH(H), respectively. Okuda argues, although those categories cannot be reconstructed based on the constraints in (44), they are attested in My6gi-sh6. Thus, they should be reconstructed in PJ. As can be seen in (45) below, Hayata (1973) points out that polysyllabic words with the initial R in My6gi-sh6 are problematic. (45) "Polysyllabic words with the "rising" mark are problematic and might be accounted for in various ways.
