Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Query:   HI ALL--

I'M TRYING TO COMPILE INFORMATION ON LANGUAGES THAT ALLOW TWO-MEMBER FRICATIVE-INITIAL CONSONANT CLUSTERS IN WORD-INITIAL POSITION. SPECIFICALLY, I'M INTERESTED IN CASES WHERE THE FRICATIVES ARE SOMETHING OTHER THAN /S/ THAT COMBINE WITH NASALS AND OBSTRUENTS.

ANY INFORMATION WOULD BE HELPFUL, EVEN IF IT'S JUST THE NAME OF A LANGUAGE, BUT I WOULD BE VERY APPRECIATIVE IF YOU HAVE INNFORMATION REGARDING WHICH PARTICULAR CLUSTERS ARE ALLOWED IN THE LANGUAGE.

THANKS,
LISA DAVIDSON
