    Dear colleagues, I read a lot of interesting discissions on different matters but never on phonostatistics. I wonder how one can foresee the labial consonants being distributed in different world languages. One should bear in mind that languages are different in all aspect. I wonder if labial distribution is the same, no matter how different languages may be. This is why I took the Aboriginal Australian language of Nunggubuyu and compared it to other world languages. The results are rather unexpected, at least for me. Looking forward to hearing your opinions, remain yours sincerely Yuri Tambovtsev
