  • * Some consonants are writen as vowels, the circumflex is used to clarify the ambiguity
  • ** The palatal consonant are a remanent of the strong, weak palatization, the weak is triger by i and converts into palatal today, the strong is triger with j and today cause an i or palatalizes depending of the sound that is after the consonant
  • The allophones (in pharentesis), are explained later.
