Reflexes of Proto-Tai initial clusters *pl-, *ml-, *kl- show a rich array of forms across modem Northern Tai, and these forms are worth studying for their phonotactic patterns. These lenitions to pj-, mj-, kj-, or py-, my-, ky-, or eventual palatalizations to tʃ- in Northern Tai are not extensively discussed in the literature: Li (1977) offers some crucial data but with little analysis, Qin (1997) offers further data with a chronology of the changes. It is precisely Qin's chronology that this paper challenges. The paper offers a chronology that is more plausible based on Qin's data and cross-linguistic evidence as well as Northern Tai phonotactics.
