Azak is written with an aphabet for roots and a syllabary for endings.
Hence it doesn't need to separate words with spaces, and indeed it doesn't.
As it has contextual suffixes to mark interrogations, exclamations, etc...,
it needs only a few punctuation marks. It has only the period (a vertical
bar of the size of the letters of the alphabet) for the long pause between
sentences, and the comma (a vertical bar of the size of the syllabes of the
syllabary) for smaller pauses inside the sentences (in fact, it always
separate clauses, like in German). One must know that the letters of the
alphabet are twice as big as the syllabes of the syllabary.
Reman use the same punctuation marks than French. Moten use them also, ut
without the semi-colon.
As I'm in a major re-designing of the writing system of Notya, I didn't
create the punctuation system yet. Same for Tj'a-ts'a~n.
