Does Heleb also have voiceless lateral fricatives, and if so, does it
distinguish velar(ized) <HLL> from palatal <HL> ?

One of the characteristics of Scungric phonology is that there are
(minimally) two coronal series, one laminal/palatalized, the other apical
(redundantly either velarized, uvularized, or pharyngealized),
distinguishing stops, nasals, sibilants, lateral approximants and lateral
fricatives for both, with the addition of trills in the apical series.
