Message 1: stops - diachronics

Subject: stops - diachronics

i'm looking for a typological-diachronic study of stop systems,
specifically to address the following:
(1) the evolution of simple /p,t,k/ systems from systems with more
features: what is the evolutionary pathway to such a simple system?
(2) more on the transition of *l, especially to voiced dental [d] (like
lakota/dakota)
any guidance will be greatly appreciated.
