Phonotactics[]

General syllable construction follows a (C)(C)V(C)(C) pattern. Two vowels may only be paired at a syllable boundary. Consonants may not be paired, except as listed below, in a syllable or over a syllable boundary. The exception to this rule is when the consonants are separated by an apostrophe.

Allowed Consonant Pairs: st sr sl fy vr tr dr pr br xr

'R' has three different pronunciations. If following a voiced consonant (see above), it is pronounced as a trill (/r/). If it is between vowels, it is pronounced as a tap (/ɾ̥/). In all other cases, it is pronounced as the lateral fricative (/ɹ/).
