Datapoint Berbice Dutch/Syllable codas

Word-final codas are severely constrained; with few exceptions, we see only a nasal consonant in a word-final coda (but note the qualification for some speakers in Kouwenberg 1994: 294). Word-medially, the prefered syllable is a closed syllable. There, only voiced stops are disallowed in codas.
