A syllable with a branching nucleus or coda (CVVC or CVCC) is superheavy whereas the one with a branching nucleus and coda (CVVCC) is extra superheavy.
The dialect allows the templates such as VV CVV VCC VVC CVCC and CVVC. In bipartite consonant clusters the templates such as CCVV; CCVCC and CCVVC; CVCC and CVVCC; and CCVCC and CCVVCC are also permissible.
Figure 3: Monosyllabic non-phonetic palindromes: V or C: B, C, D, F, G, H, J, K, L, M, N, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, X, Y, Z CVC: HAH, HUH, WAW VCV: EKE, EME, ERE, EVE, EWE, EYE CVVC: SEES CVCVC: DEKED CCVCC: SHAHS CVCCVC: DENNED Only 21 of the 26 letters are listed in the 'V or C' category in Figure 3; w is absent because it is a phonetic trisyllable and not a phonetic monosyllable.
The Word and Pseudoword reading subtests require the correct identification of ordinary words and pseudowords with different linguistic structures: consonant-consonant-vowel (CCV), consonant-vowel-vowel (CVV), consonant-vowel-consonant (CVC), consonant-consonant-vowel-consonant (CCVC), consonant-vowel-vowel-consonant (CVVC), and vowel-consonant (VC).
In one way, I'm glad that those were the days of the dum-dum teacher manuals with such gems as "Say: When a word follows the CVVC pattern, the first vowel usually says its name and the second vowel is silent." Or, perhaps, "Elicit from the students that the brightness of the moon is due to reflection of the sun's light." This teaching business really didn't seem all that hard.
In Chad, on the other hand, it tends to be formed of singulars of CVVC (as here fiil) or CuCu structure.
The remaining two sets involved long or complex vowels (and three phonemes); one set had a CVVC structure (as in heal) with vowel digraphs in medial position, and the other comprised items with a GVC+e structure (as in line).
Specifically, trisyllabic sequences of the type CVCC.iV or CVVC.iV violate evidently the optimal syllable law since they contain overheavy syllables initially.
Possible vowel pattern contrasts include 1) short versus long vowel sound patterns, 2) long versus long vowel sound patterns (e.g., CVVC, CVCe), 3) representations for long i (e.g., iCe, igh, ild, ind) and 4) representations for long o (e.g., oCe, oa, old, olt, oll, ost, ow).
WRA is a quantity sensitive dialect which distinguishes three types of syllables: light (CV and CCV), heavy (CVV, CVC, and CCVV), and superheavy (CVVC and CVCC).
