Lolly Metcalf’s South Slough Milluk

Americanist Phonetic


[ sáksɪk ],


[ sáksɪk ]  

[ ˈsɑksɪk ],


[ ˈsɑksɪk ]  

Instant Phonetic Englishization:  Like the English words ‘sock’ and ‘sick’ said together as one word, although the more we listen to this word, the more we think that Lolly has a light ejective release for the final k in the two times that she says this word. 

The word ‘fork’ does not show up anywhere in our searchable Milluk database except as the translation for the word that we hear Lolly Metcalf say in this interview segment.
