In response to a query about any language where a final voiceless
velar fricative changed regularly to a stop, Wayles Browne supplied
the example of some Montenegrin dialects of Serbo-Croatian.

Radosav Bos"kovic', " O prirodi, razvitku i zamenicima
glasa h u govorima Crne Gore ", in his book _Odabrani c"lanci i
rasprave_, Titograd 1978. The same book has a French summary of a
work he wrote together with M. Mal/ecki, _Przegla,d dialekto'w
starej Czarnogo'ry_.

I have also found that some southern Polish dialects exhibit an
identical sound change, as discussed in:

Dejna, Karol. 1973. Dialekty polskie. Wroc~aw--Warsaw--Cracow--
Gda~sk: Ossolineum.
