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
