Title: Karao Phonology, the Philippines
Written By: Sherri Brainard
Description:

Karao is a small Southern Cordilleran language spoken in northern Luzon near Baguio and nestled in the midst of some 90,000-100,000 Ibaloi speakers. The language is notable for the amount of variation in the forms of words that speakers accept. The study argues thet theese variations can be explained in termns of moras, the primary organizing unit of phonlogical segments at the word level.
