There's nothing to stop me. Well, a place where "nasal continuant" as the name for these segments breaks down is where one begins to discuss contrasts between say [n] and [D~], or [n] and [r\~]. It seems clear that what sets the latter ones apart from [n] is that [n] is the nasal _stop_ (~ occlusive), while the other ones are nasal fricatives or approximants or what have you. They're all nasal continuants. Alex
