Vowel LengthEdit

Orthographically, vowels are lengthened by doubling them: 〈aa, ee, ii, oo, uu〉[aː eː iː oː uː]. However, when at the end of a word or in a single syllable (without a coda), the vowels are diphthongized to [eːɪ̯ iːɪ̯ oːʊ̯ uːʊ̯]; where 〈aa〉 is still [aː].

DigraphsEdit

Aside from doubled vowels signifying length, the only other digraph is уо/uo which is realized as /wo/.

PhonotacticsEdit

Syllable structure is (C)(j)V(C), where:

  • C is any consonant.
  • j is any glide /w, j/.
  • V is any vowel or long vowel.

AbbreviationsEdit

Any word that involves consonant+such as sa, ja, ta, etc. are shortened to the consonant only. For example va is written as в. However, it is not correct to do this abbreviation when writing in the romanized alpahbet. 

The digraph уо/uo is shortened to ў/w in the southern dialect .

VerbsEdit

Кедисии полноље ведуутесне, кеде паремиислатой, салаве й уневене,

В парйевеху манохи курйоосни й суведави суваескоови до сувуље тарадииљии—

Кеде кииватой, в валискосте дарйемате-до, сарасу париистоноло кохуутик,

Ако до нйекохо йемне удрйете-до, удрйете-до н йи коморе дувере—

"Ии нйеке наавсатевник," мармалатой, "кохуутеьдо н йи коморе дувере—

Ива в тейто й ниљ вйаље."


Kedisii polnoqe veduutesne, kede paremiislatoj, salave ja unevene,

Va parjevehu manohi kurjoosni ja suvedavi suvaeskoovi do suvuqe taradiiqii—

Kede kiivatoj, va valiskoste darjemate-do, sarasu pariistonolo kohuutik,

Ako do njekoho jemne udrjete-do, udrjete-do na ji komore duvere—

"Ii njeke naavsatevnik," marmalatoj, "kohuute-do na ji komore duvere—

Iva va tejto ja niq vjaqe."

kede kiːvatoj, va valiskoste darjemate-do, sarasu pariːstonolo kohuːtik,

ako do njekoho jemne udrjete-do, udrjete-do na ji komore divere—

"iːɪ̯ njeke naːvsatevnik," marmalatoj, "kohuːte-do na ji komore duvere—

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,

Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore—

While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,

As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door—

"‘Tis some visitor," I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door—

Only this and nothing more.”
