It would seem so:):)

Thank you very much. I'm very into "out there" phonologies (among other things), which is why I would love to include "strident" consonants. I'm pleased to hear that Tlilarese has that affect. To be honest, though, when I speak the language, I do so very *slowly* and deliberately right now, my native tounge being Southwest Missouri English. But I do get all the sounds (even the creaky-voice pharyngeals). It took me about three months to get the epiglottal trills right, largely because I wasn't entirely sure how to make them untill I heard them on Wikipedia. It;s funny, I always figured they would be painful, but they aren't. Travis *******************************************************************
