Syllable structure is maximally something like CCCVVCC, but not all combinations are allowed. In isolation, every consonant may occur both syllable-initially and finally (although f probably does not occur finally in native words but I digress). In clusters, fricatives assimilate in voicing to adjacent plosives (f and ɬ are not distinguished from ʋ and ɮ adjacent to voiced plosives). [ɵ] is an allophone of /y/ in closed syllables, except if the final consonant is ʔ. Vowel length is distinguished only in stressed syllables, which is always the first syllable of the root — there is hence a limit of one long vowel per word except in compounds, which may have multiple.
