Linguistic LingField(s):  Phonology

Query:   Dear all,

Glottal stops in north Australian languages are phonotactically constrained
to only appear in codas; some languages of adjacent Indonesia with glottal
stops either show restrictions on their position (Sawu/Hawu: glottal stops
cannot begin words) or evidence for repositioning (Palu'e: glottal stops
cannot begin a word, and vowels preceding a medial glottal stop show
closed-syllable allophones.

Does anyone know of anything addressing the position in which glottal stops
may appear? I'm not talking about initial epenthetic glottal stops in
languages such as Tagalog, but underlying segments that appear to disfavour
onset realisations.
