______________________ Actually, Ithkuil has five tones, as described (and illustrated with sound files) in Sec. 1.3.2 of the grammar. No nasal vowels, however. There was a period during the course of developing the phonology when Ithkuil had pharyngealized vowels, then later on, breathy-voiced vowels. But they did not survive the final implementation. --John Q.
