Alright, back in Lesson 1d, we saw that some vowels can be altered by using the diacritic da0
Now we're going to see how to make syllables with two vowels, and those may include the previously studied Altered Vowels.

Dominant Vowels

In Cirtunese, when two vowels meet in the same syllable, one of them will become the dominant vowel. The accent marks not only dominance (stress / high tone), but also order.
da1 is used on the first vowel, when it's dominant. /'aa/
da2 is used on the second vowel, when it's dominant. /a'a/


ca1e /'saɛ/ The process of change
ce2 /sa'ɛ/ The end result of change
ce1a /'sɛa/ The process of regression
cea2 /sɛ'a/ The end result of regression

This also combines with the Altered Vowels that we saw on Lesson 1d.
In the case of one of the vowels being marked with a da0 , both vowels are altered.
ca0e2 /sʌ'e/ Improvement

Welp, enough alterations for one lesson.
Thank you again, for reading!
