If I don't edit for at two months or more, feel free to delete the page, but don't delete if I'm not gone too long. Also, all of this is subject to change.

Kapunese is a language spoken on the small island of Lisianski in northwestern Hawaii, and an artistic language. It is based on lots of Native American languages, especially Hawaiian. Still in progress, guys. It is a VSO language (most of the time) and cooleo.
If the letter is underlined, it is constited a vowel. Even the "ye" and "yo" vowels. Y cannot stand by itself in a sentence, it must be followed by e or o.
There are also stress indicators! To add stress to a vowel, add a (˘) above the vowel. The long vowels are ă ĕ ĭ ŏ ŭ yĕ and yŏ. If a diphthong is stressed, put a ˘ over the first letter and it will account for the second one. Without stress indicators you should say the letters in a flat tone.
ao - cow
ae - why
uo - woah
If there is other vowels stuck together in a word, they should be pronounced as separate vowels, "lua" means "leader", and it is not pronounced "lwa", it is "loo-ah"
