Comment: Stops and affricates also occur prenasalized but many of these occurrences result from prefixation, so all are analyzed as biphonemic; /g/ only occurs with a preceding nasal. The highest vowels /i, u/ occur distinctively only as first vowel in a CVV sequence and introduce fricative transitions on the preceding C.
