Minimal Pair List Consonants /ʒ/ versus /j/, 0 pairs

The dictionary search failed to find any words with this pairing. /ʒ/ is in any case very rare and does not occur in syllable initial position except in a few French loan words such as gendarme , while /j/ is restricted to syllable-initial occurrence. There is no reason why there should not be a pairing with a loan word, such as gigue versus *yeag (if there was such a word) but none have surfaced.
