Noon Vowel Harm Noon Vowel Harmony

Abstract
Noon vowel harmony shows the remarkable property of invariance in the affixes while exposing ATR variation in roots only. This study shows that the ATR harmony is no longer active and that the variation in stems due to dominant suffixes is best analysed as lexical stem variants for different derivational suffixes. This is shown to be the relict of an erstwhile fuller vowel harmony system.
