Notes

  1. ^ Only occurring between vowels in a small number of dialects around Feltre.
  2. ^ Often realized as a non-syllabic [] or omitted. In some dialects it is pronounced [l].
  3. ^ As in most Northern Italian languages, nasals do not assimilate their place of articulation to that of the following consonant, differently from what happens in standard Italian. In Venetian, [ŋ] (in Italian only occurring in /nɡ/, /nk/) is used in all nasal plus consonant clusters: e.g. canpo [ˈkaŋpo], cantoṅ [kaŋˈtoŋ].
  4. ^ The phoneme /r/ in Venetian is almost always an alveolar flap, but for some it may be retroflex [ɽ].
  5. ^ Only used in few dialects or in loanwords.
