Uh, had to make some corrections.
>labial b p p' (v) (f) m w
>dental d t t' (dh) (th) n l (r)
>alveolar j c c' z s n_ l_ r
>retroflex jj cc cc' zz ss nn ll rr
Make this line:
retroflex [dd tt tt'] zz ss nn ll rr
>palatal jh ch sh zh =9A (nh) (lh) (rh)
>lateral dl tl tl' zl hl (nl) (rl)
And this line:
lateral dl tl tl' [l'] hl (nl) (rl)
>velar g k k' (gh) (x) =F1 (l~)
>uvular g' q q' g` x' (=F1')
>pharyngeal (") h' `
The quote-sign (double apostrophe) is actually an epiglottal affricate,=20
which is very rare.
>A note: <x> in the words is really the uvular x, not velar. Actually th=ese=20
>are more like unvoiced French r's (while g` is the voiced).
I just now rectified that issue. All voiceless uvular laryngeals are now=
marked <x'>. (There are six to nine 'laryngeals' total.)
and I covet your comments, suggestions and questions.
