Latin OrthographyEdit

Though Inga Onu is typically written with it's own script, it can be phoneticized in the Latin alphabet, as follows:

Letter a d e f g h i j k n
Sound /a/1, /ʌ/ /d/ /e/1, /ɛ/ /f/ /g/ /h/ /i/ /j/ /k/ /n/
Letter ng o r s t ts u v w z
Sound /ŋ/ /o/ /r/ /s/, /ʃ/ /t/ /t͡s/, /t͡ʃ/ /u/ /v/ /w/ /z/, /ʒ/
  1. Letters "a" and "e" make the /a/ and /e/ sounds, respectively, only when stressed. A vowel is stressed when it is the second-to-last syllable in the word, or when marked by an accent.
  2. The /ʃ/, /ʒ/ and /t͡ʃ/ sounds are dialectical variants, found primarily in Vita Ngasa.

Example TextEdit

The Hobbit (first paragraph) Edit

Note: the words "hobbit" and "worm" have no translation in Inga Onu, so instead, the English words have been adapted to fit Inga Onu grammar conventions.

Hobbit tsé agafetsu vo havasis. Vo tsu aga-goga, koha, danga, kiha tsé wormé, tsu aga-rakosa, ofu, tsé tsuro néngitsi a nékangi vis: vo aga-ne-hobbit, séda isuka, vis.
When translated back to English, this text becomes: "A hobbit lived in a cave. (It) wasn't a wet, dirty, gross hole
