Lolly Metcalf’s South Slough Milluk

Americanist Phonetic


[ gændžɪ́nsi ],


[ gændžɪ́nsi ]  

[ gænˈdʒɪnsi ],


[ gænˈdʒɪnsi ]

Instant Phonetic Englishization:  gann_jin-see, for Lolly’s pronunciation of her version of the word, with its heavy pronunciation of the ejective at the beginning of the second syllable of Annie’s version of the word:  g.ann_ch!in_see, which begins with a Back G, which we sometimes call ‘dotted g’.  We gratuitously put a dot under the small capital G symbol in our modernized Americanist transcriptions.  Lolly’s Coos Bay Milluk version of the word begins with what we call a Mid G, i.e. a voiced velar stop consonant, instead of the voiced uvular stop at the beginning of Annie’s version of the word, made farther back in the throat.
