    • ...b/f/v/w + s → ...ps
    • ...g/x/ɣ + s → ...ks

VowelsEdit

Front Near-front Central Near-back Back
High i y u
Near-high
High-mid e o
Mid
Low-mid ɛ
Near-low
Low a

Notes Edit

  • The ɛ can be long and is considered a different vowel.
  • The e can only occur long (e:).
  • To compensate for the loss of a consonant following a vowel, there can occur a compensatory lengthening.
    • a → â
    • e → è
    • é → ê
    • i → î
    • o → ô
    • u → û
    • y → î

PhonotacticsEdit

  • The onset can have a maximum of 3 consonants and is obligatory.
  • The coda can only contain 2 consonants.
  • The nucleus can only contain a vowel sound.
    • (C)(C)CV(C)(C)
  • If a nasal or [t], [d], [θ], or [ð], or by a combination of those sounds, is succeded by an [s], the former consonant (cluster) will be dropped and the preceding vowel will be lengthened.

Contractions Edit

When two vowels meet, they will contract into a different vowel sound. The following table shows these contractions:

1st\2nd a e è é i o u y
a â ai au

Diminutive Edit

To convey the smallness of a noun, the affix -it- is placed right after the stem, before a possible thematic vowel, and before the case ending.

létel (rock) -> létitel (small rock, pebble)

orno (bird) -> ornito (little bird)

But some words have a stem which ends in -it- and thus are not diminutive.

tyrsitar (mountain) -> tyrsititar (small mountain, hill)

Adjectives Edit

Unlike with the nouns, there is only 1 declension for the adjectives, a mixed thematic declension.
