Subject: Epenthesis of /l/ and /n/

E-mail this message to a friend:
A colleague working in an underdocumented language has found in certain vowel
hiatus situations that /l/ is epenthesized to break up a VVV sequence, but if
the first vowels are nasalized, then /n/ is epenthesized. Are there other
similar cases out there? If not this exact case, I'd appreciate references to
either epenthetic /l/ or /n/.
