Abstract

Discussions on Norman’s (1973, 1974, 1981) Proto-Min system has mostly been on its softened initials, the tone 9, and the finals (Hirata 1988, Wang 1999, 2004, 2005, Handel 2003, 2009, Wu 2009, etc.). The focus of this paper is on the nasal initials of Proto-Min. We argue that the reconstruction of *ń may be problematic due to the fact that its reflex dzin Southern Min has been proven to be a result of a late sound change. Its original form in Proto-Min is *n. Our suggestion is that Proto-Min *ń should be eliminated.
