  • [g] is an allophone of [χ], [g] is used more often in the southern dialects. But it is still considered standard as it is also used in the dialect of the Capital city Hégestedde.
  • [R] is an allophone of [r], [R] is used more often in eastern dialects. [R] is not standardised because it is not used in any Miric dialect. The eastern dialects are developed from Hängisk.

As you can see, most of the vowel-sounds are frontal vowels, this is because of the Old-Miric Vowel shift which shifted all the vowels to the front with the exception of a few sounds. This Old-Miric sound shift separated the high-dialects from the low-dialects.


  • Husse [hu:sə] (Burgian Dialect (LOW)) -> Hysse [hy:sə] (Standardised Miric (HIGH))


High-Miric doesn't have that hard grammar at all, if you are familiar with German you'll think that it is rather easy!
