Syllable StructureV (any vowel after any vowel since there are no consonants)
OtherUnlike in many other languages vowel modifications (nasalization, breath, sibilation) appear slightly before the vowel sound itself. They may even become consonants (happens in some dialects and will happen in descendant languages), but the quality is not distinct enough to actually call them consonants.
