Re: Phonology gaps (was: Language Sketch: Gogido)

I don't know; on the contrary, I think a slightly skewed phonology gives a
lang a degree of naturalness. Omina for instance has a depleted labial
series, only /b/ and /m/, and while there is /t/ vs /d/ and /k/ vs /g/,
there is no /p/ to go with the /b/!
