A colleague working in an underdocumented language has found in certain vowel hiatus situations that /l/ is epenthesized to break up a VVV sequence, but if the first vowels are nasalized, then /n/ is epenthesized. Are there other similar cases out there? If not this exact case, I'd appreciate references to either epenthetic /l/ or /n/.
