Comment: Caddo is spoken by a small number of older people in Western Oklahoma, USA. Vowels occur both short and long and consonants may be geminated. Chafe (1976) analyses Caddo as having a pitch accent system; vowels may be high or low pitched, and additionally long vowels can occur with a falling contour.
