<< Okay, that's quite interesting. And original, too :) Quick comments: why
[j]>[n]? Is that meant to be a palatal nasal ([J] in SAMPA)? On the same
note, why [r]>[N], and not [r]>[n]? I'm sure you don't mean to have changes
in place-of-articulation, only manner, right? Finally, I'm not quite
following the last one: [?]>[h]; isn't [?] the lowest one? Upgrading?
Well, as for the approximants to nasals, I did those at the end, and I
just liked the symetry so much I couldn't resist. :) So, no, [j]>[n] is
palatal approximant to alveolar nasal. As for [?]>[h], I couldn't think of
anywhere else it could go without making a new sound. And then, which?
What's lower than glottal? This brings me to a question I've been wondering
about: What's the epiglottis? What's an epiglottal stop? How does one make
it? I wish I could ask how it sounds, but that'd be a little ridiculous,
given the medium. Anyway, just wondering.
