About Authi Authi is a tonal language with only vowels. The three tones are mid, rising, and falling, but the tone generally does not stay at the high or low tones. The tones, together with a sizable vowel inventory, make up for the complete absence of consonants. Particles indicates verb tense and other grammar, like relative clauses. It is a linguistic experiment of sorts, just to see what a language with only vowels would be like.
