inspired by the Appendix E of 'The Lord of the Rings'...

ui, iu, ai, ae, aie, eu, oi, oia, au, aua, oae, uae,

y, *, k, m, t, v,
(* represents the circle with the dot in it (in X-Sampa), a click)

Variants within the non-vowels:
t, ht, d, dt, th, td,
k, hk,
v, f,
m, mn, nm, n, mb, nd,

A prefixing letter does not have the same meaning as that same letter in a
suffixing position.
Ie, /y-/ means 'past tense', while /-y/ means 'plural form'  [save for when
the plural is explicit, rather than implicit...see the tuber example below].


y- / eun / aud / eit / kau / ae
past / burn / action / wood / saying / common
[it is a common saying that] wood burns.

y*hkeumaun v*faudea
y- / -*- / hk- / eumaun / v- / -*- / f / audea
past / both / future / walk / here / both / there / without particular
then and to come, walking all about with no (aim/goal).
aka, "wandering".

_however_, if /audea/ had been /aumnea/, it would no longer have been a
negative statement.
