I'm so far behind AGAIN with Conlang that it's getting time I stopped complaining about it and decided not read every single message. Anyway, IMO, you're onto solid gold here, Andreas. I demand CXS be changed to be (more) logical (with respect to apical rhotics): /r\/ - alveolar approximant /r/ - alveolar trill /4/ - alveolar tap /r`\/ - retroflex approximant /r`/ - retroflex trill /4`/ - retroflex tap And that's the way it should be. I will brook no discussion whatsoever. Submit to my will immediately, puny humans. Paul
