Having sh is typologically weird - even more so in the absence of voiceless aspirated stops. Is it a conscious choice against naturalism?

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

Not liking or agreeing with the way generations are defined is the same as not acknowledging the existence of time? Disagreeing with the details of the way generations are defined is one thing - this thread is full of it. But claiming not to belong to a generation, or denying the existence of gener...
