معاونت:بین الاقوامی صوتیاتی ابجد/ناپولی
See ناپولی زبان for a more thorough look at the sounds of Neapolitan.
- If a consonant is doubled after a vowel, it is geminated; all consonants can be geminated except for /z/ and /ʒ/. In بین الاقوامی صوتیاتی ابجد, gemination can be represented either by doubling the consonant (fatto /ˈfattə/, miezzo /ˈmjettsə/) or by the length marker ‹ ː ›. Neapolitan, like standard اطالوی زبان, also has a sandhi phenomenon called syntactic gemination, usually represented graphically: e.g. è ssoje /ɛ sˈsɔːjə/.
- ^ ا ب پ ت ٹ /b/, /dʒ/, /ʝ/, /ɲ/ and /ʃ/ are always geminated after a vowel.
- ^ ا ب پ ت ٹ After a nasal, /p/, /t/, /tʃ/, /k/ and /ts/ are replaced by their voiced counterparts [b], [d], [dʒ], [ɡ], [dz].
- ^ ا ب When not preceded by ⟨n⟩, ⟨z⟩ can represent either /dz/ or /ts/, according to the cases.
- ^ ا ب پ ت ٹ ⟨s⟩ is pronounced:
- If the two characters ⟨ɡ⟩ and ⟨ ⟩ do not match and if the first looks like a ⟨γ⟩, then you have an issue with your default font. See Help:IPA § Rendering issues.
- ^ ا ب پ The nasals always assimilate their place of articulation to that of the following consonant. Thus, the n in /nɡ/ is a velar [ŋ], and the one in /nf/~/nv/ is a labiodental [ɱ] (though for simplicity ⟨m⟩ takes its place in this list). A nasal before /b/ is always the labial [m].
- When not geminated nor following another consonant, /tʃ/ tends to be pronounced [ʃ].
- Two diphthongs, uo /wo(ː)/ and ie /je(ː)/, are always stressed, unless they are at the very end of a word.
- ^ ا ب Open-mid vowels /ɛ ɔ/ can only appear when the syllable is stressed.
- After the stressed syllable, /a e o/ change to [ə]. This sound is sometimes also found before the stressed syllable and spelled ⟨e⟩, as is fernì /fərˈni/.
- Vowels are long when stressed in a non-final open syllable: casa /ˈkɑːsə/ ~ cassa /ˈkassə/, or when compounds of preposition a and an article: a +’o = ô.
