I can only help with a few of these questions:
- In the Low German that my grandparents spoke, if was
/sk/ in /duItsk/ 'German' and
/S/ is /SruIb@n/ [SR\uIbm=] 'to write'.
I don't know the language good enough to come up with more words.
- In Modern Dutch, it is
/s/ in |duits| /d8Yts/ 'German' and
/sx/ in |schip| /sxIp/ 'ship'
