Sorry i'm not actually being helpful, but i've experienced a change in
the other way -- a vowel caused creaky voice.
When i first started playing with my Goblin language, Gabwe, i kept on
accidentally pronouncing the vowel i had expressly decided would be /E/
as /e/. While trying to force my mouth to keep an /E/ shape instead of
an /e/ one, i ended up adopting creaky voice accidentally. Since then,
Gabwe has had mandatory pervasive creaky voice.
