Language: Palu'e (Nitung)

Source/Author:  Donohue (fieldnotes) 
Notes:  Nitung dialect, from the North-west 
Problems:  ə is an epenthetic, unstressed vowel that breaks up CC sequences; b' is a preglottalised, optionally imploded, usually voiced stop. Acute accents represent (predictable, from foot structure) primary stress, and grave accents show (predictable) secondary stress (regular right-aligned trochaic stress).
