    The claim that Nenets has pharyngeal consonants is probably due to misunderstanding or mistranslations of the Russian term “гортанный” (throat-) or its equivalents. According to all standard grammars (see http://www.helsinki.fi/~tasalmin/sketch.html#phono also for further references), Nenets only has glottal stops (two glottal stop phonemes can be distinguished due to different morphophonemic realizations).
