AranEdit

Aran (pronounced /'eɪr-ɪn/ or /'æˌræn/) is a language created by me, for me, and with the help of me. It may sound a bit like Irish, and although that's what I based the pronunciation on, the grammar was created without inspiration from another language.

Pronunciation Edit

Word StressEdit

The primary stress of a word is on the first syllable. If the stress is put on another syllable, the first letter of that syllable is capitalized. For example, the name maRach.

VowelsEdit

Aran has long and short vowels, with long ones being indicated by a grave accent over the letter. Some of them are pronounced differently when touching a high or low consonant. If a letter is touching both, the high overpowers the low.

High Consonant Edit

Long vowels:Edit

  • à - as in say
  • è - e as in ten
  • ì - i as in free
  • ò - as in vote
  • ù - u as in actual

  • a - æ as in cat
  • e - (ə) as in battle or ə as in banana
  • i - ɪ as in sit
