I am looking, so far without much success, for any recent
(since 1954 or so) information on the Cushiticc language
Sanye (spoken in Kenya).

Would anyone know the real whereabouts of the same? I am asking
because for several months I have not been able to raise him
at his listed email address.

Message 3: Q: Frequency of coronals

From: <amrzeus.cs.wayne.edu>
Subject: Q: Frequency of coronals

I have been unable to find any examples of a language
which has labial, coronal, and velar stops, but in
which the velars are the most frequent, labials come
next, and coronals last. I am not sure such a language
exists, except that I am almost haunted by a memory
(or is it just hallucination) of just recently having
seen an article with such an example. Any help would
be appreicated and the results will be posted.
