* The Dyu dialect merges J' /ʤ/ and j /ʒ/ with Y /j/, so it becomes J' /dʲ/ and J /j/.

** The Lä dialect separates S' /t͡s/ , Z' / d͡z/ and X' /ʧ / into non-combined sounds, S' /təs/, Z' /dəz/ and X' /təʃ/


The language has simple 4 vowels. All the vowels can be nasalized and lengthened except the schwa.

  • In case of Kuu, it is /kuː/;
  • In case of Kuä, it is /kʷa/;

Nouns can be declined by Definitiveness, Case, Number, Gender and Number, Nouns are always with a capital letter.


Two words classify the Noun that follows them, "Där' " for definite and "Dir' " for indefinite.

English Noun Definite Indefinite
God Guut Där' Guut Dir' Guut


Normally they are Genderless, they can be either Male, Female and Other. Other is a special Gender that only occurs with Plural declension or when talking about special nouns like Guut "God" /guːt/.

  • Male: -a(if any last vowel except ä) / -ä(if last vowel ä);
  • Female: -i / -y(ending in a vowel);
  • Other: u / -w(ending in a vowel);


There are two declensions, one for singular and another for plural. You add "n" to the end of the gender ending, in case of Genderless you add "un", in case of Other you add "uin" if following a K and "win" if not.

  • If there is a Singular Other form then " uin' " or " win' " are used instead for the plural.
English Genderless Other G Plural O Plural Male M plural Female F Plural
Adult Män - Mänun Mänwin Mänä Mänän Mäni Mänin
Child Xik - Xikun Xikuin Xika Xikan Xiki Xikin
God Guut Guutu Guutun Guutwin' Guuta Guutan Guuti Guutin
