Abstract:This paper attempts to present a broad-based study of the Tiv sounds: their inventory, distribution, modifications and deletion in different types of morphemes. Special emphasis is on deletion, with an examination of the phonological, syntactic and semantic parameters of the process. The fact that deleted vowels in Tiv can resurface makes their study particularly important, since it can help in the reconstitution of reduced stems in related languages where deletion seems to be irreversible.
