Speaking of which, I must voice my discontent over the uneven distribution of good publishers... :-) My copy of G&I does not have such a glossary And, off topic rant, has anyone heard of a second reinterpretation, designed to undermine the drawback of the GT itself. I have a book by Starostin who says there's a possibility of the three series being unvoiced, unvoiced geminates and voiced. This is also typological, and has the virtue of the possibility of voicing of initial geminates (suchn things happen, while voicing of glottalized initials does not). Anyone? --Pavel
