Datapoint Bislama/e - higher mid front unrounded vowel

Crowley (2004: 15) says that some rural speakers tend to lengthen stressed vowels in words of 2+ syllables. He also says this is stigmatized.

Word-finally, the mid-vowels are frequently realized with high off-glides, e.g. de or dei 'day' (Crowley 2004: 16).
