Some Daghestani languages (Tsez springs to mind but I'm not sure at all) do have a glottalized [s]. The X-SAMPA is [s_>], and the IPA straightforwardly [s']. A pharyngealized [s] is [s_?\], and velarized [s_G]. Take your pick. Pavel -- Pavel Iosad Is mall a mharcaicheas am fear a bheachdaicheas --Scottish proverb
