Datapoint Afrikaans/g - voiced velar plosive

[g] shows up in loanwords in onsets that may be complex. In native words, the onset must be simple and the must be preceded by a sonorant segment and be followed by a schwa-initial suffix. However, if the preceding sonorant segment is a vowel, usually drops (inflected hoge (vs. predicative hoog) is much less likely than inflected hoë 'high'.)
