Re: Favorite Phoneme!

It seems we are destined to be mortal enemies. *kung-fu stance* Well, /ʃ/ and /l/ can be redeemed as they're my favourite phonemes in my mothertongue, but /θ ð ɟ ʒ/ are unpardonable! *Aikido stance* They're unpardonable even though one of them forms the cornerstone of the most important word in the...

So as to continue the pattern of plain vs. labial. There's a hole now, of a /jʷ/ and /ɰ/.
