PhonotacticsEdit

While tremendous variation in actual quality and points of articulation exist, a minimal set of phonemes has emerged. Already some geographic preference has begun to emerge, therefore as the lexicon increases in size and true dialects form, the phonemic inventory will likely grow. Likewise, as syntactic structures grow more complicated in order to represent greater pragmatic nuance.

C=Plosive N=Nasal consonant V=Vowel

There is no cap on the number of syllables in a word, but the current lexicon demonstrates conservatism against overcomplication. Presently only the following five syllable structures are permissible. CVC CVN CV NVC

  1. VC
