Academic Paper


Title: Why no mips?
Author: Michael Bulley
Institution: United Arab Emirates University
Linguistic Field: Phonology
Subject Language: English
Abstract: This article is about some very short words: the permutations for monosyllables in common use in standard British English having the phonetic pattern: single consonant + short vowel + single consonant. It is similar, therefore, to my article ‘Consonantal beginnings’ (ET80), in which I looked at what pairs of consonantal sounds could be found at the beginnings of English words. The pronunciation is to be taken as that given in the OED for British English.
