Actually, the lateral click sounds very k-ish to me. And Livagians hear their nasal lateral click [N^||], /lx/, as the nasal counterpart of the ejective [k'], /k/, just as [N], /nq/, is the nasal counterpart of pulmonic [g], /g/. I seem to remember students mixing them in ear-training exercises, too. {Real world, I mean.) --And.
