I've been researching on some of the languages in Hangkerim --besides
Hangkerimce-- and after the Moscha language is the largest language
besides Hangkerimce here comes what I've found.
It has a much richiest and stable phonology than Hangkerimce and
apparently are not from the same family.. most of the common vocabulary
will be easily explained by borrowings.
It has a series of aspirated and unaspirated unvoiced plosives:
/p/, /t/, /c/, /k/, /q/
/p_h/, /t_h/, /c_h/, /k_h/, /q_h/
/f/, /s/, /x/
/B/, /D/, /j\/, /G/, /R/
/pf/, /ts/, /tS/
/l/, /4/, /w/, /j/
where /4/ is the alveolar flap.
and the following vowels:
/i/, /1/, /u/, /E/, /A/, /o/
Moscha is not tonal in the sense tone is not phonemic, but follow some
tone patterns simmilar to Hangkerimce: gramatical unstressed monosilabes
are low and decletions are falling.
They use the same script system than Hangkerimce but modified:
H =3D no consonant I =3D /i/
P =3D /p/ E =3D /E/
D =3D /t/ A =3D /A/
K =3D /k/ U =3D /u/
V =3D /B/
Z =3D /s/
C =3D /c/
M =3D /m/ (inicial)
N =3D /n/ (inicial)
R =3D /4/
L =3D /l/
Y =3D /j\/
With added symbols. Most of the added symbols are found in Hangkerimce
texts prior the orthographic reform.
