I had no trouble accessing it, so it's probably a problem with your
browser. I can copy and paste, so here's to hoping it comes through:
All of the sounds are obstruents, and Mithun's book reports that
Bagemihl (whose work she's citing) claims there are no epenthetic
The highest number of consonants in a row that I've made possible in a
conlang is four, and that's enough for me. =) The structure of the
most complex syllable possible is something like this:
any fricative/affricate + any consonant + any consonant + j/w + vowel
+ any nasal or approximant
I really like looking at more consonantic conlangs (I think they're
more interesting), so if you're planning on using this information I
look forward to seeing what you do.
