I am investigating the conditioning environment which triggered the shift of
PIE alveolar /s/ to palatal, retroflex or velar /s/ in Indo-Iranian and
Balto-Slavic.  That is - following either an /r/, /u/, /k/ or /i/.  I am
interested in both the diachronic shift and the synchronic morpho-phonemic
variation occuring in Sanskrit.
I am looking for any examples of similar diachronic shifts or synchronic
variants in a NON-Indoeuropean Language.
Any help would be appreciated.
