  1. Samuel Beer Says:

    I think that Nyangi should be treated as an “/l/ and lateral obstruents language”, even on the basis of the cited source material. The cited source, Heine 1975a: 281, lists a voiceless lateral fricative in contrast with a normal /l/ for Nyangi. This analysis is repeated in my dissertation on Nyangi as the language is remembered by the only partial speaker that I was able to identify (Beer 2017: 24-25).
