Why does the IPA have no symbols for retroflex implosives?
How is the passive voice formed in French? Surely the distinction, at least in
intransitive sentances, needs to be made.
If I put my toungue between my upper lip and upper teeth, I can form nasals and
plosives, and without my tongue, fricatives. Not only are there no IPA symbols,
this POA doesn't even seem to have a name. As it may be used in a future
conlang, this is not good.
