PhonotacticsEdit

All syllables are (C)(C)V(H)(C). H may be anything but a stop. Nasals in H position assimilate to the following C if it is a stop. C maybe not be less sonorous than H if H is present.

The following initial consonant clusters are allowed (in orthography):

  • st
  • sp
  • sk
  • sl
  • sw
  • sn
  • sm
  • fl
  • fw
  • fj
  • pw
  • pl
  • pj
  • kw
  • kj
  • tw

/ŋ/ cannot occur in syllable onsets

/x/ is never realized as [h] in codas.

There is a writing system for the language. It is a system usually written with a brush on paper. Please note that vowels are placed as diacritics over consonants but they are not required. Also note the phoneme /ɪ/ and its corresponding representation are no longer used in the language.
