Duh! I am a twit! I knew that.
Thanks for the info on the uvular nasal.
Ditto for the info on the uvular fricatives.

Well I'll *try* to describe them. I'm just learning a little
Shona from the guy who cleans my office.
ZV seems to be a double articulated fricative. Sort of a combination
retoflex "z" sound and lamino-labial "v" sound simultaneously produced.
DZV is the affricate counterpart.
Thanks for any help.
