Re: Bilabial / labiodental distinction

    There are languages that distinguish voiced/unvoiced fricatives at the
labio-dental and bilabial position.  I see no reason why it would be any more
difficult to distinguish stops.  I've heard that there are labio-dental stops
in a few natlangs out there, but I've never seen examples.  There so few that
there was no need to create a symbol.
