Abstract

Nhanda is unique among the Pama-Nyungan languages of Western Australia in exhibiting a distinctive glottal stop. This paper describes the position of glottal stop within Nhanda phonology and morphology, and proposes two distinct historical origins for the glottal stop. In one case, glottal stop is the reflex of intervocalic glides *y and *w; in the other, it derives from *w {á,ú} R sequences, resulting in rhotic-glottal stop clusters.
