Ok, I have a question!
I have a vague understanding of how many sounds can change in a language
over time... a stop /t/ could become a fricative /T/, or an unvoiced /t/
becoming a voiced /d/ for example...
...but I don't know how this kind of change affects the more 'exotic' sounds
such as clicks. Do clicks mutate? (I'm sure they must). Do they mutate
into other clicks, or can they become regular consonants? Do clicks often
mutate _from_ consonants?
