I read your previous explanation on how the harmony works, but I'm still not sure if I follow. Is harmony marked on consonants or vowels? Or both? In other words - taking a word like "tithina": would all the consonant and vowel markers be alveolar, or would it be possible to show etymology by using a, say, palatal fricative sign + the dental form of i?
