Linguistic LingField(s):  Phonetics

Query:   Does anybody know about the sound system in !Xu, I mean, how many sounds
are there in that language? I was noticed that this is probably the
language with the biggest sound inventory. Besides, it seems that !Xu has
the biggest phoneme inventory. Is it true? If so, what are the sounds and
the phonemes of !Xu? I would appreciate if someone can tell me something,
or even relate to some references where I can find this response. After
receiving the answers, I summarize them and post it to Linguist, so that
you can also know about !Xu sound system!
