Final Root Vowel Elision

When an affix with an initial syllable of CV is attached the final vowel is elided., but not if the initial syllable of an affix is CCV.

knosa = cliff
knosta = cliffs
Knosattu = two cliffs

when the final vowel is a diphthong it reduces to a monophthong

au, wa > o
ou, wo > u
ai, ja > e
ei, je > i

Accent and Prosody

Alpic has quite strictly initial stress. Historically, Proto-SW Danubian had penultimate stress but just shifted following the elision of vowels just preceding the stressed syllable. The stress is light, as in the Romance Languages and Greek, not heavy as in the Germanic or Slavic Languages.

Prosody is syllable-timed. Vowels in closed syllables are phonetically shorter than vowels in open syllables, so all syllables are equal from a moraic standpoint. Prosodic rhythm is trochaic.

Verbal vs. Non-Verbal encoding of Predicate Adjectives

Alpic has a double copula similar in semantics to the double copula of the Romance Languages, with one copula, "aul", used for inherent properties and another, "glel", for temporary or impermanent properties. When there is a predicate adjective (like English " I am good") instead of using the copula of inherent properties, the adjective is treated like a verb.

Tiveho.
ti-veho
2SG.A-good
"You are a good person."

When the subject is A the adjective is being done by the subject.

Pigle veho.
pi-gle veho
3SG.A-be good
"He/She is behaving."

When the subject is P the adjective is being done to, or is experienced by, the subject.

Glema veho! Ha tu?.
gle-ma veho
be-1SG.P good and 2SG.P
"I am well! And you?"

Reflexive Verbs

Many Alpic verbs, when used intransitively, are inherently reflexive in meaning. These verbs can only take the Medio-Passive voice when used in a passive sense. They also have their own set of intransitive subject agreement inflections that follow the verb

The verb endings

1SG: -nni
2SG: -hi
3SG.Ani: -kfi
3SG.Inani: -tti
4SG: -kfo
1PL -gu
2PL: -gi
3PL.Ani: -hu
3PL.Inani: -kko
4PL: -ppe
Impersonal: -kke

hjonanni
hjona-nni
wake-1SG
"I'm waking (myself) up"

kmulgu
kmuli-gu
cook-1PL
"we are cooking (food for ourselves)"

Interrogative Verb Morphology

In polar questions the Agentive marker moves to the end of the verb, following the Patientive marker. The vowel of the Patientive marker then is reduced if the phonotactic rules would not be violated.

Nutfatmi?
nute-fa-tu-mi
Help-COND-2SG.P-1SG.A
"Could I help you?"

The Medio-Passive Voice

The MP Voice has several usages, each with a distinct morphology and syntax.

Passive
STEM-P
Nutessipau Larze esa.
nute-ssi-pau Larze esa
help-MP.PST-3SG.P Larze INST.3SG
"Lars was helped by it."

Reflexive
A-STEM
Anya kmulissi.
Anya pi-kmuli-ssi
Anya 3SG-cook-MP.PST
"Anya cooked herself food."

Reciprocal
STEM-P-A
Larze kwemzippi Anya.
Larze kwem-zi-pa-pi Anya
Larze play-MP-4SG-3SG Anya
"Lars is playing with Anya"
