When two vowels come together, they are voiced separately, with a glottal
stop in between each letter (Saalangals dont write the stop down unless it
comes at the ends of words).
I dont usually write in the glottal stops between vowels because with the
hyphenating and accenting , adding in all the glottal stops between the
vowels start to make words look ugly to me.
>I forgot to ask you why <p> is the only stop to become voiced at the end
When I wrote that, it was just my initial idea :) ....
However, I thought about it more several days after I wrote the initial
email. Then I felt that was a little unusual to have just one stop become
voiced, so now all voiceless stop change to voiced stops .
p > b
k > g
t > d
It's worth the risk of burning, to have a second chance...
