It can go both ways. In Shoshoni, a non-final syllable may have a coda (the
first half of a geminate stop, a nasal homorganic with a following stop, /h/
or /ʔ/) but a final syllable may not have a coda.

In English, word-final codas may have more consonants than non-final codas,
though there are place restrictions on the word-final consonants.
