Abstract: In this paper I describe and analyze the phonology of the northern dialect of Ilocano (Western Malayo-Polynesian, Northern Luzon). The description includes segmental phonology, syllable structure and weight, stress placement, and phonological processes. I also argue the following. First, the phonemic status of the glottal stop depends on the environment. It is partly phonemic, but epenthetic in particular environments. Second, syllables that contain a long vowel are heavy but open syllables with a short vowel and closed syllables should be considered as light. Third, Ilocano has no diphthongs and those which have been considered to be diphthongs are in fact a sequence of a consonant and vowel. Fourth, the assignment of stress is almost entirely predictable and is assumed to be essentially postlexical. Fifth, in Ilocano three distinct prosodic word domains, the lowest prosodic constituent which is related to morphosyntactic constituency, should be posited to describe phonological processes. I also show that most of these processes repair ill-formed syllable structures.
