Nova has tones but not in the conventional sense. It has 5 tone levels, /i/ is always high tone, /a/ is always low tone, /e/ is mid-high, /u/ is middle, /o/ is mid-low. In other words, the vowels have inherent tone as part of their phonemic description. -- Brad Coon My Conlang and Conculture pages Most of my pages including my home page My Outdoor and Primitive Skills Pages My wine pages.
