PhonotacticsEdit

Makijo accepts all possible English patterns. It has some additions, though.

A and I Rule Edit

The letters A and I do not permits to combine with the consonants E, O, P, R, T, and U, nor with neither A and I. It is because their pronunciations contradicts each other (A /ei/ contradicts with E /an/).

If in case a word needs the illegal combinations, an apostrophe (') mark will be added between, signifying a pause.

Examples:

  • Arch - Ei'irzila (pronounced as 'e ir-zi-la')
  • Third - Oylaou'irca (pronounced as 'oy-law-wir-ca')

Also, this rule is applicable when A and I is placed after the letters stated above.

Example:

  • Each - An'eizila (pronounced as 'an ey-zi-la')
  • Rip - Ir'oum (pronounced as 'ir ow-wim')

When A and I is placed between two letters stated above, both rules is still applied.

Example:

  • Ritual - Ir'ou'oyuneipa (pronounced as 'ir ow o-yu-ney-pa')
  • Pair - Um'ei'ou'ir (pronounced as 'um ey ow ir')

Writing System Edit

Note: Letters are arranged in native order.

Sound ou pa va um tu vi wa fi es ir zi an
Letter F M H S T U K W Z A B D
Sound so de la ne oy un ro xa ji ei ye ca

Ampersand (&) is used as a replacement for eivaca (English: and).

  2. When ampersand is used in abbreviation, spaces are omitted.
  3. When ampersand is used in the last two elements of a series (separated by commas), the comma is omitted.
