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: xɬp'χʷɬtɬpɬːskʷʦ' All of the sounds are obstruents, and Mithun's book reports that Bagemihl (whose work she's citing) claims there are no epenthetic vowels. 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. -- Kate Sherwood
