Subject: Jakobson's Strident Feature in Non-Fricative Cons

Liquid consonants in Spanish can be characterized as [+/- tense], however,
this characterization poses a problem for the coherence of the system,
since [+tense] consonants are otherwise unvoiced. The system does not seem
to allow many other alternatives. The question is the following:

Has the strident feature been used in liquids in any language?
