Bjeheondian accents

Bjeheondian accents tend to have more conservative consonants but less conservative vowels.

Voiceless stops /p t k/ are usually unaspirated [p⁼ t⁼ k⁼] in Bjeheondian accents. Voiced stops /b d g/ are fully voiced. Front fricatives /f θ s/ are by default voiced [v ð z]; they only devoice to [f θ s] when followed by an "inherently voiceless" consonant, i.e. one of /p t k ts x h ʔ/. (Thus obstruent voicing assimilation can be said to work like in Slavic languages or Israeli Hebrew.)

Standard USB

/əm ən əl ər/ become [m̩ n̩ l̩ ɐ] in closed unstressed syllables.

Standard Bjeheondian Windermere keeps ä as a separate vowel /ɐ~ɜ/ except before r.

/r/ is uvular [ʁ] and vocalizes when not before a vowel, as follows:

  • ar = är → [aɐ~a]
  • er → [ɛɐ]
  • ear → [eɐ]
  • or → [ɔɐ]
  • oar → [oɐ]
  • ir = ier → [iɐ]
  • ür = üer → [yɐ]
  • ur = uar → [uɐ]

Vocalization of R has caused a chain vowel shift:

  • ie üe ue ea oa > [ɪ ø ʊ ɛ̝ ɔ̝]
  • i u e o > [əɪ əʊ ae ao]
  • a ä > [ɒ̝ æ̝] (like Hungarian a e)

The intonation is like Israeli Hebrew except it's stress-timed.

Fincreaș

Classical Windermere stays distinct unlike in other dialects.

Wieb

The Wiebian accent is the source of the change of /r/ to uvular [ʀ] in Bjeheondian (cf. Phnom Penh Khmer and Israeli Hebrew).

Other Bjeheondian accents are shifting towards the Wieb accent.

Tsăloș

Ä is like /e/

Ü is exolabial like swedish

While u is endolabial

And ü is typically a monophthong while i is between /i:/ and /əi/

Ea, ie, oa and ua are lax
