Laryngeals in Amhanara

You can get high tones out of laryngeal features as well. In Athabascan
a final glottal gives a low tone in Sarcee but a high one in Chipewyan,
and I seem to remember that loss of aspiration in stops generates a high
tone in some Asian languages.

How about rising tone for /h/ and falling for /Ɂ/ ?
