Title: The Derivative Markers by Long Vowels in Hindi
Authors: SATO, Tsutomu
Issue Date: Feb-2011
Publisher: 明治学院大学文学会
Abstract: This paper is the fourth report of the annual fieldwork project, conducted in the academic year of 2009, the topic of which is a short and long vowel contrast in Hindi. Through the analyses on Kiribati (Sato 2009) to Mongolian (2010b), it was found that contrasts of short and long vowels mark other functions than not only showing semantic differences. This study, first, points out that some Hindi long vowels make new derivations of words with their corresponding short vowels, and makes clear the average durational ratio of long vowels against short vowels of this group. Then, the average durational ratio will be compared with that of a group which produces semantic contrast only. Finally, the average of both groups will be given, and it will be shown where in the ranking order of durational ratios the Hindi average is located, together with other four languages.
