Well, it evidently can, or he wouldn't have made it. Remember that Conlanging is a possibility-space, and a very large one. Some are more likely to occur in a real language than another, but the unlikelyhood shouldn't stop us from coming up with original ideas to put in our Conlangs. Because some weird thing happen in real life - things that would seem, at a first glance, un-Natlangish, occuring in very few other languages, or in only one family. Clicks, for instance. Um..yeah.
