2016-11-20 15:28:38 -0400 asked a question onset clusters

Are there any languages which have a coda BUT no coda clusters and only onset clusters? Languages like Hdi, where there are only onset clusters but where they violate the sonority sequencing principle, is not what I am looking for. I am after something like "the language has codas, but the only cluster it has is #TR, a plosive+liquid onset cluster".

Well, I'm looking for evidence to falsify my hypothesis. If it stands, all the better,

Yes, though implosives are voiced, I understand them to have further properties that make them different. I mean plain truly voiced egressive plosives.

Does any language have both prenasalised and truly voiced plosives? (Either contrastive or complementary distribution)
