Comments: Iranxe voiced bilabial stops occur only word initially, and are optionally prenasalized but they contrast with nasals before both oral and nasalized vowels. Nasalized vowels before stops have a nasal consonant offset. Vowels (but not diphthongs apparently) occur both long and short. Labialisation of bilabials and in /tW/ is replaced by palatalization when the following vowel is /u/.
