Morphology and acoustic phonetics are discussed in order to inform the phonological analysis. Several interlinear texts and a wordlist are included. Notable features of the Mono sounds system include: a phonemic bilabial flap with velarization; an eight-vowel system with fewer front vowels than back vowels; and a three-level tone system that includes tonal morphemes, a tonal melody on some locative adverbs, and tonal polarity on morphologically complex prepositions."--BOOK JACKET.
