What does this language consider a "voiced environment"?
Probably this: when neither adjacent segment is ‘ s h or word-final position. As a result, the stops would only be voiceless in clusters with those sounds or in word-final position./
What about /k/ and /t/? Aren't they voiceless too?

Re: Noun apposition compounds in other languages

If you would like to know about Japanese, if it uses an adposition/particle to form a compound noun, it will pretty much exclusively be the possessive no . However, the nominative ga and the genitive no are occasionally swapped out for each other, with no marking subjects in certain relative clause...

However, one thing to note: whalebone is not made from whale bone, or indeed any type of bone. Though whalebone presumably has an even stronger grain than whale bone. I don't know, though. Wow.

Re: Hala

My original idea with /h/ was that it was 'hard', almost /k/, but in the process of being lost. That might not make sense at all, though, so I'll probably either add a /k/ or replace /h/ with it. Not sure yet. Interesting that you're considering replacing /h/ with /k/, as that would make "Hala" hom...

Re: Noun apposition compounds in other languages

It's common to use other prepositions too, but I at least wouldn't quite consider these compounds to be honest, just lexical phrases. Incidentally, you can in fact say arresto por incendio provocado in Spanish. Cool! It's worth noting that another way of translating English noun-noun compounds into...

With connectives like these, the head noun comes first. "Na" is ...
