Here are the vowels in Iadraja. They split into 3 groups of vowels; Soft Vowels, Hard Vowels, and Stressed Vowels(rare)
(Hard Vowels)
Аа = a /a/
Ее = e /e̞/
Ии = i /i/
Оо = o /o̞/
Уу = oo /ʊ/
(Soft Vowels)
Яя = ya /ja/
Ѐѐ = ye /je̞/
Ӥӥ = yi /ji/
Ёё = yo /jo̞/
Юю = yu /jʊ/
(Stressed Vowels)
Note that these letters have the same sound as the ones above; however, there is more stress on the I sound, giving the name Stressed Vowels.
Ѧѧ = Ia
Ѫѫ = Ie
Ꙙꙙ = Ii
Ѥѥ = Io
Ꙛꙛ = Iu
(Special Letters)
These letters are special and have special uses. They are also endings to some nouns.
Ьь = this letter is mostly used with the verb ending. The difference between (for nouns) and -ць(for verbs) is to show that one is a verb. You will see it used with nouns every now and then; if you see it, it will unvoiced the consonant to a voiceless version.
Ъъ = A rare letter that can make the И sound, but it's mostly silent. It is barely used, however, it can be see with nouns. Even though it can make the И sound it's treated like a consonant.
Ѣѣ = This letter was made for the rare vowel sound Ы, as in Russian. However it's barely found today due to the widespread letter reform movement, and vowel shift that happened in the Iadrajai language.


Here are some things that you might want to know!

  • Stressed Vowels are NOT allow to end a word; they be next to other vowels. However it's rare for 2 Stressed Vowels to be next to one another.
  • Some dialects in Iadraja unvoiced the voiced consonants at the end of a word. For example the word Кабраб = a cablin, is pronounced in standard Iadraja as Kabrab, however in the dialect of Vnadzagrad, it is pronounced as Kabrap. The same is true with vowel clusters and double vowel endings. The adjective Золнай = angry when paired to a Feminine noun is Золная, the letter я is pronounced as Ya; however, in Vnadzagrad is pronounced just as A. So Золная ахула (the angry ant) is pronounced as Zolna ahula compared to Zolnaya ahula.
