The Sounds of Washo

In the following brief illustration of the Washo sound system, the sounds of special interest are bolded and underlined. If there is no word in a box then the sound either does not occur in this position or is not relevant (e.g., word initial ʔ).

Washo speakers: ES = Eleanor Smokey, SJ = Steven James. Clicking on a speaker's initials will play the appropriate recording of that speaker. To download the sound files, right-click (Windows) or control-click (Mac) and select "Save Link As...".
