  • Coda: [m], [n], [p], [b], [t], [d], [k], or [l].

2. [u] and [i] are unvoiced when following a voiceless consonant in last word of syllable with no coda.

3. [h] proceeded by [u] or [i] becomes a [ɸ].

4. [i] cannot proceed [j].

5. Coda ending in [t] followed by [s] or [ʃ] in next syllable fuse to form affricate onset.
