Data from a variety of languages are offered in support of the claim that although there are several processes by which languages commonly add to an already existing stock of long vowels, there is only one mechanism by which a language without a distinction of vocalic length commonly introduces such a distinction.

This mechanism is the coalescence of vowel sequences, typically after loss of. Get this from a library. The historical phonology of vowel length.

While rejecting a claim for the disappearance of distinctive vowel length in historical French as ‘counterfactual’ (Picard, 3), Picard's own arguments in support of the existence of vowel length do not rise to the level of fact. Picard fails to differentiate between derived versus underlying (hence distinctive) features.

When /s/ occurred at the beginning of a syllable, however, no change was observed. Drawing on a wealth of previously neglected data to fully describe all aspects of phonology, morphology, and syntax as well as historical development, this is the most comprehensive reference book published to date on southeastern Guatemala’s four nearly extinct Xinkan languages.
