clicks
In answer to the query about the phonotactic possibilities of clicks with
reference to the use of ! (and other symbols like /) in titles, I can say
that as far as my reasonably limited knowledge of the situation goes, it
appears that clicks are restricted to the beginning of morphemes. This means
that they can occur word-internally - in compounds for instance.

The symbol ! is used to represent a post-alveolar click in the newly
revised IPA chart. Of course it can occur in the middle of a word.
