I impose a moratorium on my postings for a week (at least on
Lithuanian phonology). This would prevent me from writing more
nonsense. Of course stressed /a:/ can bear both circumflex and acute.
Of course phonologically long /a:/ doesn't occur in
tautosyllabic /aR/ synchronically -- it's always phonologically short
there, as I wrote myself in the previuos posting. What I intended to
say is "phonologically long /a:/ derived from *à (historical short
prolongated in stressed position) always has circumflex; as to the
tautosyllabic historical *aN (N={*n,*m,*l,*r}), only *á:N (>/áN/) or
*aÑ (>/aÑ/) (but not +àN) was possible".
