Comments[edit]

I got the click inventory from a summary in Collins & Bell 2001 (ref. at ‡Hõã) rather than directly from Nakagawa. It may be worthwhile for someone to verify the data. At the least, this should show whether all 48 potential click consonants are attested.

Collins & Bell may have reanalysed some of Nakagawa's data, so if there are discrepancies, it might be best to mention that in notes rather than deleting the info here. kwami 01:45, 18 September 2005 (UTC)

Got one of N's later papers. There are 52 clicks; filled out the rest of the inventory but left out most phonotactic constraints. kwami 01:37, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

G|ui and |Gui[edit]

(But is the G|UI wysiwig?)
The article has Nakagawa using both. Varlaam (talk) 07:16, 28 November 2012 (UTC)

Yes? He does. — kwami (talk) 16:06, 28 November 2012 (UTC)
Yes, the freely mobile click. Except in position final, as that is disallowed.
If that is in fact correct, then perhaps a [sic] is in order, to indicate that that is an authorial idiosyncracy, and not the more reasonable typo. What say?
(I think I normally see your name in long form, don't I?)
