This talk was presented on 2021 April 8 - 11 at the 39th meeting of the West Coast Conference on Formal Linguistics.

Provided abstract:
I argue that glottalization in A'ingae (or Cofán, an Amazonian isolate, ISO 639-3: con) plays a typologically novel role: It is a laryngeal feature of the metrical foot. I account for the limited distribution of glottalization, its interaction with stress, and cases of apparent glottal metathesis. My proposal entails that traditional structures available to metrical theory (Hayes 1995) must be enriched by allowing the association of features such as glottalization to metrical constituents.
