Abstract: Awa Pit is a Barbacoan language spoken in Colombia and Ecuador. Although there has been some research on this language before, the exact sibilant system is still up for discussion. In the current study, it is argued that there are two sibilant phonemes in Awa Pit, and that other sibilants are allophones of these two. Additionally, palatalization is put forth as a phonological process and argued to occur under certain circumstances in Awa Pit.
