There is one important restriction on this elision: it must not result in a sequence of three vowels with no intervening consonants. In practice, this means that (1) elision cannot take place in two successive syllables, and (2) the addition of a vowel-initial enclitic blocks elision in the preceding syllable.

Vowel lengthening The formation of long vowels through the elision of an intermediate consonant (usually /I/ or /n/) was discussed above. A similar and perhaps related process affecting roots ending in [r] or /N/ also yields long vowels, but only in certain morphological contexts. Roots ending in stressed CVr or CVN have their vowels lengthened when the diminutive suffix -rV\s added. Since only a single consonant remains of the expected cluster (rr=> r and nr => ή), this lengthening is probably compensatory following degemination.

One other approximant regularly elides in one particular word. The initial /w/ of the deictic locative adverb wanf 'there' is frequently dropped when it directly follows a verb. The final vowel of the verb assimilates (if it is unstressed) or coalesces (if it is stressed) with the now initial /a/ of the adverb, as illustrated in the following examples: (19) a. U a kärääni. 1. Consonants 19 b. U jiye ani. 4. Nasals It is almost possible to analyze the nasal stops as nasalized variants of approximants which occur before nasal vowels.
