A selection of typologically unusual or possibly unique sounds in Changana are briefly described, including the unaspirated and aspirated versions of /tl/ and /p§/ as well as voiced and aspirated prenasalised affricates such as /ndZH/. It is also shown that prenasalisation occurs with implosives as well as with voiced, voiceless unaspirated, and voiceless aspirated stops.
