Concept list Sims 2020 253

The given list underlies the study on the reconstruction of tone for the proto-Rma language. It re-examines the data, taken from Evans 2001 and Sims 2014, and draws on the cognates from the non-tonal Rónghóng variety LaPolla and Huang 2003. Although previous research suggested that proto-Rma was a non-tonal language and that tonal varieties underwent tonogenesis, the current study provides the evidence that proto-Rma had a two-way tonal contrast.
