Title:The Phonology of Lopit and Comparison of Dialects
Abstract:Five of the six Lopit dialects of South Sudan have at least 90% lexical similarity and are rightly called dialects of the same language. Nevertheless, 60% of words differ in at least two dialects. In addition, the same phonemes, syllable types, and morphological alternations can be claimed for all the dialects with few exceptions. Although there are some common alternation patterns among the dialects, the alternations as well as which dialects alternate are mostly unpredictable.
