A Double Counter-Universal in Kelabit. Working Papers in Linguistics, Vol. 5, No. 6.
Blust, Robert A.
This paper discusses the term "language universal" and posits a definition of a "counter-universal." It is proposed that the voiced aspirates of Bario Kelabit represent an exception to a posited phonological behavioral universal and are an important addition to the inventory of possible phonetic segments.
