*Only applies to specific cases:
[ch] becomes /k/ at the start of a word and is pronounced /x/ in any other case.
[gh] becomes silent at the end of a word and elongates the vowel before it. E.g.: [lanagh] -> /lana:/

In general, every letter or digraph in Alessian only has one pronunciation (exceptions see above). There are neither slender nor broad consonants. For example the letter [r] is always pronounced /r/, even at the end of a word where you would normally not pronounce it in British English. Verbs in Alessian always have an -ar suffix which is pronounced /ar/.
