Re: (L&N) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

Does anyone know of any vowel length alternation systems that have developed recently? Or that otherwise have a well-understood origin?

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

I haven't read Francois' article, but it's worth pointing out that PAn *R is just insane everywhere. Reflexes of "*R" span literally an entire alphabet - /d/, /g/, /h/, /j/, /k/, /l/, /n/, /N/, /r/, /R/, /s/, /w/, /x/, 'y' (Blust lists both 'y' and 'j', not sure what values they have) and /z/, as w...

Prestopping of resonants is my favourite phonetic feature ATM. What languages have them? In which contexts they have appeared diachronically? Hiw has a prestopped velar lateral from Proto-Oceanic *r.
