This article is fascinating:

The abstract is worth a read, though the article itself is very technical. But I like seeing a technical analysis like that of something other than Human Language.

(i) hhhk
(ii) hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhWhhhh WWhHWhhWWhWhhWhWhWWwhWWWwWhhKhKKKWKWKKKh hKWWKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK
--- End quote ---

But (fortunately? unfortunately?) those are just abbreviations:

--- Quote ---Abbreviations
boom = b, krak = k, krak-oo = K, hok = h, hok-oo = H, wak = w, wak-oo = W
