- I guess so... i'm not sure exactly how it's articulated, but i was thinking something parallel to the 'lateralized S' in Proto-Semitic that is supposed to be the same as the Welsh |ll|. I seem to remember that one of the Arabic emphatics, maybe emphatic /d/, was also lateral, and comes out as /ld/ in loans into Spanish.
