Preliminary notes on the phonology, orthography and vocabulary of Semnam (Austroasiatic, Malay Peninsula)

Burenhult, Niclas LU and Wegener, Claudia (2009) In Journal of the Southeast Asian Linguistics Society 1. p.283-312
Abstract
This paper reports tentatively some features of Semnam, a Central Aslian language spoken by some 250 people in the Perak valley, Peninsular Malaysia. It outlines the unusually rich phonemic system of this hitherto undescribed language (e.g. a vowel system comprising 36 distinctive nuclei), and proposes a practical orthography for it. It also includes the c. 1,250- item wordlist on which the analysis is based, collected intermittently in the field 2006-2008.
