Light Ejectives:  Lolly has only very light pronunciations of the ejectives here, so that one one could really tell that they are ejectives.  

Effect on the Preceding Vowel: The frontness (i.e. the palatalization) of the Ejective Front K [ k̯ʼ ] is only really noticeable by its effect on the vowel said before it, which has a higher tongue height that it would otherwise have.
