Syllable Structure(C)(C)V(C)C*('**)

* Intervocalic consonants tend to become partially devoiced if voiced and vice versa. Word-final consonants end with no audible release unless emphasized by a verb of existence.
** An ejective mark (') turns unvoiced consonants into an ejective equivalent, and adds emphasis and a final (ə) otherwise. The ejective is falling out of favor of the emphasis+ə instead in modern Goblin.
Stress informationStress falls on the initial syllable, or second syllable if the first is an Article.
