Uvular consonants in Languages of the Caucasus

P. 150-153.
Moroz G., Martynova Aleksandra.

We present a database of uvular consonant subsystems of indigenous languages of the Caucasus from all branches (Northwest Caucasian, East Caucasian and Kartvelian). Data for the database were collected from existing language descriptions and field work. All in all, 39 languages were analyzed. This database allows us to systematically compare the inventories of uvular consonants in the Caucasian languages and create a predictive model for the co-occurrence of particular uvular consonants.
