Apicolabials can't precede rounded vowels.
François gives /ts/ as the underlying form of the affricate, but it's usually realized as postalveolar or alveolopalatal, so /tʃ/ is given here.
Stress is usually predictable, but marginally contrastive due to final high vowel deletion: _mo tapaiá_ "he found me" vs. _mo tapaía_ "he found him/her". (The 1SG object suffix -á corresponds to -au in Tangoa, and stress is regularly penultimate.)
Internal clusters: /ŋŋ ll ls lt ml pɾ rk rn sm sr βtʃ βs βt/.
Initial clusters: /kl ltʃ lp ml nɾ nk nr pɾ pl rk sl sn βtʃ βs/ - e.g. /rkel/ 'reach', /ltʃeŋ/ 'strike', /nreɾan/ 'sometimes', /nɾa/ 'they'. Other clusters exist in Bislama loans: /smat/ 'smart', /store/ 'story', /skul/ 'church'.
