About Ripanlligu A silly idea for a language - (most of) the lexicon is made from English words pushed through a sound change tool to twist them into something rather different. fun fun fun

Syllable StructureRipanlligu's basic syllable structure is C-V-(ʔ, ŋ). Onset consonants are required; the syllable-final consonants (ʔ and ŋ) change depending on the following consonant (see "other" section).
Stress informationStress always falls on the first syllable.
OtherSyllable-final consonants:
The (glottal) stop /ʔ/ assimilates (even across morpheme/word boundaries) to a following plosive or fricative's place and voicing, so:
[p] before /p, f/
[b] before /b, v/
[t] before /t, s, ɬ/
[d] before /d, z, ɮ/
[k] before /k, x/
[g] before /g/.
It is realised as a glottal stop [ʔ] before nasals, approximants, taps, and pauses/utterance-finally.
When using Latin script, these sounds are represented as the sound they become (e.g. when assimilated before /s/, the sound is pronounced [t] and writted <t>, etc.) The glottal stop pronunciation is represented with <q>.

The (velar) nasal /ŋ/ assimilates (even across morpheme/word boundaries) to a following plosive, fricative, or nasal's place, so:
[m] before /p, b, f, v, m/
[n] before /t, d, s, z, ɬ, ɮ, n/.
It is realised as a velar nasal [ŋ] before velar consonants, approximants, taps, and pauses/utterance-finally.
When using Latin script, the syllable-final nasal is represented by <m> in environments when it has assimilated to become [m], and by <n> in all other environments.
