"No, this isn't posted to the wrong forum. It concerns the Norwegian
'kj'-phoneme, which i just found in the Sampa chart represented by C. It's a
funny phoneme, an unvoiced version of our j (Sampa j\), a bit on the rarish
side, and some say we are on our way to losing it."

Both my native languages, German and English, have [C], though as allophones
of /x/ in German and of initial /h/ + /j/ in English, in words such as G
<ich> "I" and E <human>.
