Inventory of clusters. List of occurring intervocalic clusters into which /C/ and /:/ enter: short vowel : VCV VC:V or VCCV long vowel: V:CV V:CV: VC:V: or VCCV: VCV: These can be summarized as (i) pattern with single consonant: V(:)CV(:), (ii) pattern with consonant cluster : VC both formulas may ay be united as : (iii) V C Π- e I} (0 (C) The combinations of the same elements into sequences *V:C:V or *V:CCV, and *V:C:V: or *V:CCV: do not occur, these being clusters of three consonants.
