Abstract:
In this paper I discuss epenthesis, vowel reduction, and nasal spreading in Ma Manda (formerly Sauk), a previously undescribed Finisterre-Huon language of the Trans-New Guinea family. After describing these processes I address how the theoretical analyses are integral in leading to the practical application of the establishment of a usable orthography.
