Pronunciation!Edit

The Vowel I

I is pronounced in IPA as [i]. It is similar to the ee in sweet. Try to say:
asitta uli imi

The Diphthong IU and Digraph ŸI

IU is pronounced in IPA as [jy]. This is similar to saying "yee" in English, with the ee having rounded lips.
ŸI is pronounced in IPA as [iː]. Try saying meet, holding the ee longer.
qiu pÿì

The Consonants F and G

F is pronounced in IPA as [f], just like in English. Like f in fly.
G is pronounced in IPA as [g], exactly like English goat. If it used in the digraph NG, it becomes IPA [ŋ], like the ng in sing
falè govmò lang
