Alál: Phonology, Part 2

Phonology, Part 2: Vowels This is long overdue and very abbreviated; I'm procrastinating.  Vowels may be marked as H, M, or L; this isn't a tone distinction (though it used to be, thus the letter choice), but a combination of height and tendency to attract stress, where M could be considered "reduc...

The oddball click-and-/q/ trio /ǀ~ᵑǀ~ǀʰ !~ᵑ!~!ʰ ɴ q~ɴ~ǂʰ/ is fun, but I'm considering replacing them (mostly) with ejectives corresponding to the other POAs (since they don't qui...

I've been starting a more comprehensive list of Alál complex roots, which are the majority of verbal roots in the language.
