  • Mood:

/s/ sometimes turns to ʃ~ɕ before /i/ in tagalog

i know that terms like Tagalog silya [ˈʃiljɐ] 'chair' is pronounced as ʃ but i heard an old speaker pronouncing /s/ like ʃ~ɕ before /i/ rather than an ordinary /s/ i know that terms like siyensiya are normally pronounced as ʃienʃja ~ɕenɕa or names like tricia/trisha are pronounced as triʃja~triɕa~ triʃa...

i heard wierder pronounciations even on tv like gardener is pronounced as garʤiner~garʥiner...
