PhonotacticsEdit

The onset of a syllable may only contain a single consonant e.g. /ta/, /rwa/, /kha/ or it may contain a plosive or (labio-)dental fricative followed by an approximate or tap e.g. /tya/, /pja/, /fwa/.

The coda of a syllable may only contain a single consonant that is NOT a plosive, trill, or tap.
