I can make some whistles voiced, but not reliably. When I produce them I don't think I hum, but the aerodynmaics that produce the whistle are distorted, producing an odd sort of buzzing. They'd be interesting to include in a non-human language, but not in one that I'd actually plan on speaking! Bfowol
