Datapoint Eskimo Pidgin/b - voiced bilabial plosive

The /b/ is a phoneme of limited occurrence that exists mainly in words of non-Eskimo origin. It is encountered in the spelling of words of Eskimo origin, but only preceding <l>, and probably pronounced as [pl], but perhaps even as [pɬ]. The example word, which is attested in three independent sources, is possibly from Chinook Jargon (van der Voort 1997: 384).


Exists only as a minor allophone
