Daft theory of the week: h3 was actually /B/ (voiced biabial fricative)
< **/b/. Therefore, as required, more "consonantal" than /m n r l w y /,
but still continuant enough to have a syllabic form, replaced by /a/ or /i/.

Please don't lock me up yet. Even I don't believe it. But can someone tell
me why I don't believe it???
