OT: A project

From:andrew <hobbit@...>

I'm looking at a project and I'm wondering if this range of sounds would
be unnatural:

p, b, t, d, k, g
B, v, s, D, G, h
tS, dZ
m, n, l, r, y

I started looking at Hindi placenames and thinking: Hmmm, I wonder what
it would sound like if those aspirated stops were fricatives...?  Can
/B/ and /v/ coexist?  Or should I expect them to crunch together?

It's all over now.  They stand backs to the wall
Waiting for the fascist's sword to fall
In the desperation of a young life about to end
He turns before the bullet, And forgives a friend.
