Not those three, certainly. [xD] Coda clusters are pretty rare. My immediate guess, since I've never made a list, is that the only phones that don't wreak havoc when juxtaposed to the noun-enders are liquids and nasals. The only word I can think of with an /f/ in that position is "nefts", "naphthaline", and that hardly screams indigenous word. And even with liquids and nasals, examples are not legion, which is why I'm being a little dodgy about this. löifthíks is, of course, a gorgeously quintessential Géarthnuns word. And so, to integrate Keenir's definition (which rolled in as I was writing this):

löifthíks n. deliberation, contemplation, thinking through
