You can view information about the synchronic and diachronic phonology of a language by navigating to the language and choosing one of the following links in the side menu:

  • Phonemes to view the synchronic vowel and consonant inventories as well as the diachronic correspondences with Proto-Algonquian.
  • Clusters to view the set of primary consonant clusters in the language (i.e. the synchronic clusters that reflect Proto-Algonquian clusters) and their correspondences with the clusters of Proto-Algonquian.
  • Rules to view a list of synchronic and diachronic phonological rules. (We're still working on refining the rules component.)
