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. Adam
