Sandalo, Filomena. 1997. A grammar of Kadiwéu: with special reference to the polysynthesis parameter. MIT Occasional Papers in Linguistics, 11. Cambridge, MA: MIT. 14-15.

Notes

Sandalo notes that there are register-based phonological differences, and “noble and non-noble Kadiwéu differ in that Noble Kadiwéu lacks long semivowels.”
