Linguistic LingField(s):  Phonetics

Query:   Dear linguists,

I am chasing up a reference attributed to Catford.
I have been told that he has discussed the acoustic reasons that lie behind a
perceived link between the use of aspiration to contrast plosives and the
elevation at which that language can be found (possibly in a study of
languages of the Caucasus).

Can anyone help me to find this reference?
