Thanks for taking a look, Mathias! I've modified the document a bit to address what you bring up. I've added a pronunciation guide to the consonants (though I may have to modify some parts of both that and the chart so they agree with each other more closely), and I've addressed the difference between words used as suffixes and the same words used as isolates. (I've also added a few words to the lexicon, and expanded somewhat on the conjunctions with what I put in another post in this packet.) --- Bob's Original Hero Stuff Page!
