Glottal deletion in Farsi

Effacement des glottales en farsi


Cross-linguistically, glottal consonants are prone to deletion. In Farsi, /ʔ/ and /h/ delete in all non-word-initial positions. I propose two CVCV analyses of the phenomenon and one of the compensatory lengthening that it triggers when the glottal is not word-final. These explain the otherwise overlooked cases of post-consonantal glottal deletion, as well as the lack of compensatory lengthening in word-final position.
