Kaytetye is an Australian language with a unique combination of phonemic pre-stopping in its nasals series, as well as non-contrastive pre-stopping in its lateral series. In this paper, we describe two phonetic correlates of pre-stopping in Kaytetye, segmental duration and extent of tongue movement. With nasals, pre-stopped segments are longer and have greater tongue movement than their plain counterparts. Neither of these patterns holds for laterals. We interpret these differences in light of their phonemic status.
