I have noticed recently that the term "moraic" has come to be used
for any writing system that has CV units.

Hank Rogers at U. of Toronto is using it in his course notes


for Mayan, Cree, Cherokee and Vai. I haven't seen his new book yet
but I assume it will be in there.

I have no idea how this could relate to the phonology of Cree, so I
am wondering if anyone knows how this term has come to be used for
so many systems. I have seen it elsewhere as well - it seems to be
relatively common now.
