Pre-aspiration biblio

Because I’ve been working on pre-aspiration quite intensely (one of the loves of my life) and because, every now and then, I receive an email asking about useful/most recent pre-aspiration papers, I’ve decided to make a publicly available bibliography on the phenomena that have been called pre-aspiration.

If you are aware of a relevant publication/poster/pre-aspiration-research-whatever not included in the list, do please email me so I can fix that. There’s necessarily a bias towards works released in English, so I’d appreciate your help especially regarding studies written in other languages.

The works are organised by languages, which are organised alphabetically. Where the work is discussing e.g. three languages, I list it under all three languages.

Note: I’m putting this online on the 15th of June, knowing that as yet not all the relevant works are mentioned here (and those on native American languages in particular).
