Like some Slavic languages, consonant phonemes except /ð/ and /ʔ/ come in hard–soft pairs. In the orthography, soft consonants are normally marked by the letter y, similar to Hungarian diagraphs ty, gy, ly, ny.

Vowel Harmony[]

There are two classes of vowels in Taechatder: Opened and Closed.

Monophthongs

A E O Á É Ó
Opened a e o á é ó
/ɐ/ /ɘ/ /ɵ/ /ɒː/ /eː/, /øː/ /oː/
Closed ė i u ë í ú
/ɘ/ /ɨ/ /ʉ/ /ɤː/ /iː/, /yː/ /uː/

Diphthongs

AE OE AO EO
Opened ae oe ao
/ai̯/ /oi̯/ /ɒu̯/ /øu̯/
Closed ei ui ou
/ei̯/ /ui̯/ /ou̯/ /yu̯/

Vowels of every affix attached before and after stems are determined by the class of vowels in the stems.

  • dancocdero ('of Chinese language') – opened vowels a, e, and o.
  • izícėtu ('of kings') – closed vowels ė, i, í and u.

Palatalization[]

Paired consonants before e, é, , i, í and are always soft.

hard soft
trem ('a house') [t͡ɕɘm] tremem ('as a house') [t͡ɕɘ.m͡ɲɘm]
piľ ('fire') [p͡cɨl] piľim ('as fire') [p͡cɨl̠ʲɨm]

Paired consonants before a vowel which is not e, é, , i, í or can be either hard or soft. If they are soft, the letter e is inserted between the consonants and the vowel when the vowel is opened and the letter i is inserted when it is closed.
