Pronunciation- under developmentEdit

ConsonantsEdit

Most constants are pronounced as they would be in English.


Exceptions

The letter K in Zazt always makes a hard K sound (as in kite) while C always makes a CH sound (as in Church).


B in Zazt is pronounced as if it were spelled BE. Except when it is actually spelled BE than it is pronounced like B would.

Ex: Bu(to be) is pronounced as if it were spelled Beu while Utbeil(car) would be pronounced as if it were spelled utbil.


The letter H and Y are silent when they are not at the beginning of a word. Note: even though they are usually silent letters they usually effect the pronounciation of a word. How so will be decribed later.

Vowels prononciationEdit

A- AH

E- AY as in BAY

I- EE as in FEET

O- OH

U- EW as in NEW


Note: Any italic letters refer to English pronunciation. EM for example in Zazt is pronounced as AYM because E in Zazt is pronounced as AY as in BAY. While '''EM '''(when italic) refers to its pronunciation in English. EM is pronounced as EM in EMPTY.

Double, Triple Same ConsonantsEdit

When every you have a word that has two of the same consonant together as in the verb rmmca (to write) the consonant is pronounced as its name in English. For example the double M in rmmca would be pronounce em as in empty. So that the word rmmca would be pronounced remca

Other ex: Lettca (to think) is pronounced letica, Uktodll (toliet) would be pronounced uktodel.


Exception: WW is pronouced as QU.


When every you have a word that has three of the same constant then an apostaphe needs to be used after the first consonant such as in the word en'nn (lazy). En'nn is pronounced En'en.

Double, Triple Same VowelEdit

A- When there are two A's together in a word such as in laau (light), AA is pronounced as an enlonged A which would produce an AHH sound.

E- When there are two E's together in a word such as in fee(last) the E's are pronounced seperatly which will produce an Ay Ay sound.

I- When there are two I's together in a word the first I is pronounced as I in the Enlish word ICE while the second I is pronounced the same it normally would as EE in FEET.

O- When there are two O's together in a word each O is pronounced seperately as it normally would.

U- When there are two U's together in a word each U is pronouced seperately as it normally would.


When every you have a word that has three of the same vowels then an apostaphe needs to be used after the first vowels such as in the word ga'aa (to go). Ga'aa is pronounced Ga'ahh

Vowel + YEdit

AY is pronounced like the AY in English such as in the word BAY. AY in Zazt is pronounced just like the vowel E in Zazt.

IY is pronouced like I in ISLAND

OY is pronouced as O would usually be pronounced as OH

EY is prounouced as E would usually be prounouced as AY

UY is prounounced as the U in UM.

Pronounciation ContinuedEdit

Consonant Clusters at the beginning of wordsEdit

Regular- pronounced as they would be in English


dr

fr

gr

kr

kl

pr

tr

st

sl

pl

gl

sp

Irregular-


All consonant clusters at the beginning of words which are not regular are irregular. Such as in the word scamca (to cause). Sc is irregular, to pronounce it you take the first letter and pronounce it as it's name in English; scamca would be pronounced escamca. Other Ex: zb (is) would be pronounced zib. Remember B is pronounced as if it were spelled BE so zb would be pronounced zibe.

Other combinations which affect pronunciationEdit

Ei- Pronounced like EE in FEET just like the Zazt vowel i but is more emphasised

Ou- Pronounced as OU in OUT

Et- Pronouced as ET in PET

Ed- Pronouced as ED in RED

Es- Pronouced as ES in YES, pronounced same as SS in Zazt


Aw- Pronounced like AW in AWSOME

Ow- Pronounced as an emphasised O as OHH.


Adding YEdit

Adding Y to the first combinations will prevent changes in pronunciation for the upper list of combinations listed above. Remember EY and OY are pronounced as E would normally be pronounced and as O would normally be pronounced.

E is normally pronounced in Zazt as AY and O is usually pronounced as OH so

Eyi- Pronounced AYEE

Oyu- Pronounced OHEW

Eyt- Pronounced AYT, EIGHT

Eyd- Pronounced AYD, AID

Eys- Pronounced AYS, ACE

PrepositionsEdit

Prepostions in Zazt don't match up exactly with English prepostions.


IN and ON


IN when refering to actually being inside of something (a room for example) translates to RLLK in Zazt.

ON when refering to actually being on/ontop of something (a chair for example) translates to ULK in Zazt.


While when the words IN and ON refer to other things such as being "on" television or saying that you wrote something "in" pen, the word L'LL is used.

In these cases your not saying your actually ontop of the television, and your not saying that what you wrote is inside a pen.


Ex:

I am on my bed.

Im zta ulk mess eidll.


I am in school.

Im zta rllk ileotto.


I like to write in my language.

Im amca ta rmmca l'll mess oubt.

Coordinating ConjunctionsEdit

And- N

But- bea

Or- odo

So- zuz

AdjectivesEdit

JED and SSP endingsEdit

While there are words that are only adjectives such as en'nn(lazy) other adjectives are creating by adding JED and SSP to the ends of verbs. Auldta(to bore) for example can be made into Auldjed(Bored) or Auldssp(Boring).

Ex: Im zo auldjed. Translation: I am bored.


Use of Bu(to be)Edit

Bu can also be used when describing a noun but you must use a verb which agrees with the noun being described.


Amca- to love

Ex: Im bu amkat. Literal Translation: I be loved. Actual Translation: I am loved. Remember Bu must be conjugated

Ex: Ize bi amkot.


Note you can't write "Im zoo amkat" because that would mean "I loved" amkat would be used as a verb in past tense.
