Query:   Hi all--

I'm trying to compile information on languages that allow two-member fricative-initial consonant clusters in word-initial position. Specifically, I'm interested in cases where the fricatives are something other than /s/ that combine with nasals and obstruents.

Any information would be helpful, even if it's just the name of a language, but I would be very appreciative if you have information regarding which particular clusters are allowed in the language.
