Example text

It would, however, be crucial to know what happens when a sequence of three (or more) High tones arise as a consequence of Juxtaposing three (or) more morphemes each of which contributes one of the High tones in the sequence. (23) claims that only the first High in the sequence would remain. e. HHH -> HLH. ), then (23) would fall to account for the data and a left-to-right iterative application of the original form of Meeussen's Rule would be motivated. e. HHH is converted to HLH not HLL). It Is, perhaps of interest to note that in the Karanga dialect of Shona, which we have noted already is tonally clearly related to Venda, there is an analog of Meeussen's Rule which can be shown to operate in an alternating fashion as well.

And if Meeussen's Rule were an iterative rule working from iight-to-left, we still predict that the first stem High would change to Low. Why? g. because of being in a non-derived environment). Although the second stem High falls to undergo Meeussen's Rule, the first stem High will be susceptible since it stands after a High tone in a derived environment. Even If Meeussen's Rule is regarded as a non-iterative rule, the only vowel that meets the structural description of the rule is the first stem vowel.

Thus a prefixless noun that begins with a Low tone will behave just like all prefixed nouns that begin with a Low prefix. The first Low of the word will delete in the post-High context; if the second vowel of the word is associated with a High, that High will change to Low by virtue of Meeussen's Rule. The High of the preceding word will spread as far as the second vowel of the (prefixless) noun, where it will form a contour tone with the Low of that vowel. The resulting contour tone is, of course, subject to simplification in the appropriate environments.
