Well, the change /k/->/g/ actually happened in Spanish, as well as /p/->/= b/ and /t/->/d/. But I think that voiceless->voiced is unlikely to happen a= t the same time then voiced->unvoiced. Probably a more natural change: voiced stops -> voiced fricatives voiceless stops -> voiced stops some time later: voiced fricatives -> voiceles stops this make finnal change patterns like: p -> b t -> d k -> g b -> f d -> T g -> x
