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.

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 .
