Interestingly, I endowed Tairezazh with initial N>n early on, long before I
had much idea what kind of sound changes are common or plausible or not.
You're just lucky sometimes, I guess.
(Intervocally and finally, all three Classical Klaish nasals - /m n N/ merges
as [n] in Tairezazh - it just occured to me that I know of no anadewism for
this. Anyone with one at hand?)
