حواشیترميم

  1. The classicized allophone [q] only occurs in Classical Arabic borrowings and proper nouns.
  2. The phonemes /p/, /v/ and /ʒ/ are only found in loanwords and they can be pronounced as /b/, /f/ and /ʃ/ respectively depending on the speaker.
  3. ^ ا ب [ɪ]~[e] and [i] are allophones of the phoneme /i/. Word initial and medial /i/ in stressed syllables typically varies across [ɪ] ~ [e], but it is strictly [i] at the end of words, in unstressed syllables.
  4. ^ ا ب [ʊ]~[o] and [u] are allophones of the phoneme /u/. Word initial and medial /u/ in stressed syllables typically varies across [ʊ] ~ [o], but it is strictly [u] in final positions.
