In order to avoid digraphs, I've ventured out of basic ascii. I hope nothing
horrible happens in the sending.
stops: p /p/ t /t/ c /k/
fricatives: f /f/ s (1) x /T/
liquids,etc: w /w/ j /j/ r (2)
nasals: m /m/ n (3)
0. Most consonents have voiced allophones.
1. /s/ or /S/
2. r or l
3. /n/ or /N/
æ /& (i think)/
¦ /?/ english "aw" as in "awful"
o /?/ english "oh" as in "Ho Ho Ho"
u /u (i think)/ english "oo" as in "oops"
ø /?/ english "ou" as in "could" not "ouch"
vowels receiving neither primary nor secondary stress reduce to /I/,/@/.
/I/ for front vowels. /@/ for mid,back vowels.
diphthongs: ai, æu, ¦i
Basic syllable structure is (C)V(C).
Stress is on the penultimate.
Monosyllabic lexical items are stressed.
Monosyllabic particles/grammatical markers are not usually stressed.
Word order will prob. be SOV.
