Phonotactics[]

The long sound mark (–, NOT a hyphen) can be used to avoid repetition of letters when vowels or consonants are doubled. It is placed AFTER the letter that's doubled. The long vowel mark (¯, combining: U+0304) can also be used with vowels to make them long. Note that the letters J, Ү, S, X, Δ, Ƹ and ꞌ cannot be doubled, so if you see them doubled in a word, that's an error. Also, note that the letter ꞌ is not an apostrophe, even though it looks like one. Compare the letter (left) and the apostrophe (right): ꞌ'.
