PhonotacticsEdit

Aspirated and voiced plosives cannot be final, nor can /r/. If there is a situation where an aspirated or voiced plosive would normally be final, aspirated plosives become ejective and voiced either is left out or become ejective. Glottal stops can only be medial or final. /w/ only occurs when it replaces /ya/ as /wa/. /k/ --> /c/ when before /ç/ or /cç/.
