Huitepec- [ ? ], p 3
rule summary -
Huitepec has a unique phonolosical history and
seems to have developed a phonological structure[ ]
[ ] is the other languages (see fricative series, for example),
It appears to be most like Peñoles and perhaps Tilantongo,
differing in the weak presence of Rule # 1 in Huitepec
( * wi reduction), and in the lack of any s or s frictatives
(no rule 5 or 6; * returned and * s > of, no s or s
from other sources, except rare occurencies, like - se,
3 pg. dependent pronoun)
