Introducing b:vz: my newest lang.
Phonetic inventory (in SAMPA):
B voiced bilabial fricative
v voiced labio-dental fricative
D voiced interdental fricative
z voiced alvolar fricative
Z voiced postalveolar fricative
z` voiced retroflex fricative
G voiced velar fricative
R voiced uvular fricative
h\ voiced glottal fricative
These will be transcribed as: b,v,d,z,x,r,g,q,h
I'm still debating including the following phonemes:
j\ voiced palatal fricative
?\ voiced pharyngeal fricative
w labio-velar aproximate
Since these do not yet have a sure place in the phonetic inventory no
transcription value yet exists.
Each of these phonemes can be realized with either of two phonemic
lengths. The long versions are indicated by a colon (:) following the
character. It is possible that some dialects may also have extra long
variants marked with a double colon (::).
hv:g = heart
zxd = liver/kidney
z:x = lung
bv = brain
r:z = gall bladder/pancreas
More to follow . . .
