Okay, so he uses a uvular stop. I also wouldn't be surprised if it becomes effectively glottalic sometimes. To me, the "weirder" thing is not the place of articulation of that stop, but the syllabic nasal that often precedes, even if I myself often use a syllabic nasal there. =================================== Thomas Wier | AIM: trwier "Aspidi men Saiôn tis agalletai, hên para thamnôi entos amômêton kallipon ouk ethelôn; autos d' exephugon thanatou telos: aspis ekeinê erretô; exautês ktêsomai ou kakiô" - Arkhilokhos
