Voicing in East Cree

Sounds are classified as ‘voiced’ if the consonant was produced with more than 45% voicing. They are classified as ‘voiceless’ if the consonant was produced with 45% or less voicing. The majority of the sounds were unaspirated (the length of the release was less than 10 milliseconds). See the Methodology page for more information.

Both Northern East Cree and Southern East Cree have instances of voiced P, T, K, CH and voiceless P, T, K, CH. The voicing difference is not phonological.
