Plosive - ‘
Fricative - h
Velopharyngeal* (the opening from the mouth to the nose)
Plosive - k
Unvoiced Fricative - x
Voiced Fricative - g
Unvoiced Affricate - kx
Voiced Affricate - kg
Nareal (in the nostrils)
Unvoiced Fricative - f
Voiced Fricative - v
k voices to match other consonants in clusters.
kg may be realized as a voiced k.
Low - o - m (plain m)
High - i - m̅ (m with overline/macron)
Rising - a - ḿ (m with acute)
Falling - e - m̀ (m with grave)
Low - oo - m̈ (m with trema)
High - ii - m̿ (m with double overline/macron)
Rising - aa - m̋ (m with double acute)
Falling - ee - m̏ (m with double grave)
I think I'll stick to unicode now that I have three times as many vowels, and have no idea how to romanize them otherwise
(C)V(F) where C is any consonant or allowed cluster, V is any vowel and F is either k, x or f.
The language is isolating and uses particles to mark part of speech and case and such. Since all words are marked, word order is very free, but the default word order is VSO.
Particles are monosyllabic and have one of the following structures: V, V:, CV
Particles precede the words they modify. Here’s the list of particles so far:
Subject particle - ii
Object particle - aa
Indirect object - particle ee
Time particle - kvo
Until particle - ko
From_on particle - vo
Place particle - kxe
To particle - kge
From particle - xe
Verb particle - fa
Modifier particle - oo
Repeat particle - ‘a
Prepeat particle - he
I'll explain those last three:
The modifier particle marks adjectives, adverbs and possesive nouns. Modifiers follow the words they modify, thus: fa X oo Y = "to X Y-ly" and aa Z oo W = "a W-some Z" or "W's Z"
The repeat particle repeats the last particle, so it functions like a sort of "and".
The "prepeat" particle repeats the particle before the article repeated by the repeat particle. Here's an example: aa X oo Y ‘a Z he W = "a Y-some and Z-some X and a W" (the ‘a repeats the oo and the he repeats the aa)
To distinguish them from particles they must have one of the following syllable structures: VF, V:F, CV:, CVF, CV:F, or be polysyllabic.
Here's the little vocab I have so far:
Nomen agensis prefix gi-
Yes - ‘ŋ̋
No - xm̈x
