Query:   Dear Linguists,

I would like to collect information on the cross-linguistic
distribution and behaviour of vowel-initial syllables. For example, is
there any implicational relationship between the occurrence of
word-initial and word-medial ones, e.g., do you always have hiatuses
in languages with vowel-initial words? Or, do you know of any cases
where vowel-initial words behave in a special way?

Many thanks,
Katalin Balogne Berces
