Abstract: Oman, located in the Arabian Peninsula, is a linguistically rich country with a number of indigenous languages one of which is Lawatiyya. This study presents the consonantal and vocalic phonemes of Lawatiyya, an Indo-Aryan language spoken by a Shiite minority in Oman. The identification and description of the phonemes are based on recordings of minimal pairs. Word stress is also identified.
