Please note that phonology is by far the aspect of conlanging that interests me the least--I think this is my first attempt even to use CXS. I'm half-expecting that I'm using it wrong. The values of the sounds in the conlangs are meant to be (more or less) the union of the pronunciations of Latin and Greek that I was taught in high school (except that the French teacher taught me how to pronounce /y/ :)). (What I understand to be the usages of, e.g., 'e' and 'E' seem to me to be backwards and confusing...or am I confused yet again?) Any departures from that are purely my errors. An issue: I don't know what it means to have a completely open front vowel, so I am using 'A' instead of 'a'. This may just be wrong. Corrections and explanations requested.
