In this lesson (which is totally useless just btw) I'll be covering the basics of  Basgitian phonology and orthography.

[edit] [top]Vowels

Basgitian only has 3 vowels, two of which have a nasal variation. Below is a table showing these:

FrontBack
Closei
Close-mido - õ
Opena - ã


[edit] [top]Consonants

There are 11 consonants in Basgitian, including 3 loan-word phonemes and 1 non-distinct letter:

BilabialAlveolarVelarPharyngealGlottal
Nasal(m)(n)
Plosivep - bgʔ1
Fricativeʕh
Lateral approximant(l)


1This is written as <x> in Basgitian orthography.


- The max syllable structure is CVVC. Cross-syllable consonant clusters of up to two consonants are allowed
- /a/ and /o/ are nasalised after /b/ and /p/
- /ʕ/ is inserted before a word-initial vowel
- There are no diphthongs


So uh, yeh. I'll add more stuff when I think of it :P
