What kind of clusters are permitted? In my Watakassi', the permitted syllable-types are (C)(apr)V(n/Fric/l), with a few forbidden clusters like glide+glide (*wya not allowed) and dental-obstruent+w (*tw, *dw, *nw forbidden), while in Eastern, the permitted syllable-type is (C)(apr)V(C)(Fric), with syllable-final fric-fric forbidden

Is /dz/ considered an affricate?
