Those are hard to make, it took me months to figure it out. But, once you get it, it's not very hard to make. It's impossible to say how to do it, you just have to figure it out yourself, unfortunately. As for "subglottal", I know that it is below the glottis, is that with epiglottal it's possible to force the glottis to vibrate, even with an epiglottal stop, but not with this "subglottal". -- "Cats are rather delicate creatures and they are subject to a good many ailments, but I never heard of one who suffered from insomnia." -- Joseph Wood Krutch ICQ #: 18656696 AIM screen-name: NikTailor
