That was all written in X-Sampa more or less. [q] is a voiceless uvular stop. As for the language it is a fusion of Japanese, Tundra Nenets, Selkup and Mansi, with various features taken from each. The grammar and syntax are mostly Japanese, but there are some extra "cases" developed from Nenets postpositions, extra verb tenses and aspects as compared to Japanese...actually about half the Nyenya'a clitics don't even exist in Japanese afaik. ---frank
