Chaos at its maximum
Also im currently in the process of designing a language for a species with no voice box, lips, teeth, or nose (meaning no voiced sounds, no vowels, no dental/labiodental sounds, no bilabial sounds, and no nasal sounds)
Is their lack of a tongue the reason why the vowel inventory has no front and back vowels?
I guess so
Beltonia is that not that what causes back vowels?
I was only asking because I don't know.
I'm pretty sure front, central and back vowels are caused by tounge position, and close, mid, and open is decided by how open your tounge is
What do you think?
