Science - Linguistics / phonology
Portuguese term or phrase: flutuação
O alongamento vocálico é meramente compensatório; não há vogais longas subjacentes, isto é, que não estejam em flutuação com as seqüências CVC ou CVCC

As in,

The vocalic lengthening is merely compensatory; there are no underlyingly long vowels that are not in variation with the CVC or CVCC sequences.
