Query:   Request for References Concerning Admissible Onsets in Russian and other
onset-heavy languages:

I am interested in obtaining information regarding admissible onset
types in Russian and other languages which allow for heavy
onsets. Information on English is plentiful, but I haven't been able
to locate information on any other languages. I was disappointed to
find that Comrie's _Languages of the World_ contains no information
regarding admissible onsets in the various languages covered, although
I suppose that would go beyond what is possible to cover in a
one-volume work. If someone could point me in the right direction,
I'd be very appreciative. Thanks,

David Harris
