Emegali is spoken in 3rd millenium BCE Yemen and neighboring regions in a
parallel world by descendants of Semitic peoples who adapted Sumerian
vocabulary to a simplified Semitic structure. They a
Stops: p, b, t, d, k, g
Nasal: m, n, ng [N]
Fricatives: f, s, z, /sh/ [s_l] according to my source, x /h/
Glides: y [j], w [w]
Vowels: a [A], e [e], i [i], u [u], a^[A:], e^ [e:], i^ [i:], u^ [u:]
Semitic adaptations:
emphatic consonants become s, z
[T] and [D] become [s] and [z]
[ts] becomes [t+s] (two distinct consonants]
[X] becomes [x]
[R] disappears
[?\] and [h\] disappear
If someone could make suggestions regarding the adaptations of Semitic
sounds to Sumerian ones, I would appreciate it.
