Wano is a Papuan language of the Indonesian New Guinea Highlands.
|Plosive||p b||t d||k||ʔ|
The voiced plosives /b/ and /d/ are imploded word-initially and intervocalically.
When a nasal occurs before /p/, /p/ becomes a prenasalized voiced plosive [ᵐb]. Similarly, when a nasal occurs before /t/ or /k/, they become, respectively, [ⁿd] and [ᵑɡ].
/p/, /k/, /ɡ/, and /ɡ/'s allophone, [ᵑɡ] become labialized before /w/, with /ɡ/ becoming [ɣʷ].
The sequences /tj/ and /dj/ become the palatal fricatives /ç ʝ/.
