Hey, linguists and well-read amateurs: I've been poking around for a while, and I'm really stymied trying to find out how to fit uvulars and pharyngeals into a feature geometric system. I've gotten a couple of fragmentary descriptions from here and there, but nothing very conclusive or helpful. The best I can get is that there's two possibilities: A privative feature [pharyngeal] under the Place node (but what about distinguishing uvulars from pharyngeals?). A Guttural node that dominates Larynx (specifying voice, spread/constricted glottis, etc) and Tongue Root, which somehow works to specify ATR and pharyngeality. I'm pretty frustrated here. Answers or links to web resources are greatly appreciated. Jesse S.

And they answered, "You are the eschatological manifestation of the ground of our being, the kerygma in which we find the ultimate meaning of our interpersonal relationship." And Jesus said, "What?"
