I can't figure out what means what anymore to even make non-phonological changes, so…

Here's something from the FAQ and my best attempt at transcribing it how I'd say it.

There are several reasons why this could occur. First, ensure your username and password are correct. If they are, contact the board owner to make sure you haven’t been banned. It is also possible the website owner has a configuration error on their end, and they would need to fix it.>

I'm not sure what the problem you have is. Also what makes you assume we say it the same way?

In the end, though, how I transcribe the word is irrelevant to the game, isn't it?

A vowel is inserted before a vocalic consonant, ɪ if the consonant to the left is coronal, and ʊ if it is labial. With velars the vowel is determined by the next consonant.
Zero copula with nouns and adjective predicates.

@xroox Reading this makes it ×10 funnier if you read it like a robot or like a text-to-speech reader.
I like my languages how I like my women: grammatically complex with various moods and tenses, a thin line between nouns and verbs, and dozens upon dozens of possible conjugations for every single verb.

First change: /ʔ h Cʰ ɹ/ > /Ø Ø C r/.

Second change: The language becomes pro-drop. Wherever subject pronouns can be implied from context, they can be omitted.

First Change: Chain shift /ɪ/ > /i/ > /eɪ/ > /aɪ/ > /a/.
Second Change: Chain shift /ɔɪ/ > /ɒ, ɔ/ > /aʊ/ > /æ/ > /ɪə/.
Third Change: /oʊ/ and /u/ fronting.

Adpositions in phrasal verbs, articles, and conjunctions become clitics, with some variations depending on following segments.

First change: Tidying up the IPA transcription (mostly making sure the diphthongs are marked as such).

Second change: Possessive adjectives become prefixes. So does the infinitive marker "to".

Third change: Schwa deletion. Nasals assimilate in POA to following stops, and stops assimilate in POA to following nasals. In clusters of fricatives and stops, fricatives assimilate in voicing to the stops.

First Change: A length distinction develops between tense and lax vowels, where all diphthongs become long vowels.

Second Change: Auxilliary verbs cliticize to verb roots, somewhat agglutinating the language, where infinitive forms disappear.

Third change: Serial verb constructions form. (This only applies to one example in the text.)

Fourth change: Formation of nasal vowels.

First change: Tidying up the IPA (mostly adding stress marking). Following one of the previous changes, the infinitive prefix on "make" has been deleted.

Second change: C₁VC₂C₃# > C₁C₂VC₃#, when C₂ is a sonorant. Clusters of obstruents that do not agree in voicing assimilate in voicing to the final element of the cluster. Initial vowels have glottal stops inserted before them.

Third change: Prepositions become postpositions.

Sorry, don't know how I missed that.

First Change: Following the creation of phonemic initial glottal stops, coda unvoiced stops become coda glottal stops.

Second Change: Final unvoiced fricatives become /h/, which then lengthens the preceding vowel. Overlong vowels have a glide inserted. Overlong /a/ remains unchanged for now.

Third Change: The vowel /ɵ/ derounds to schwa, while a chain shift takes place with /a/ where /aːː/ > /aː/ > /a/ > /ə/.

Fourth Change: Pronouns become bound clitics, with a you inserted in imperatives.

Creaky voiced/ejective consonants create low tone on the following vowel, along with final and intervocalic /h/ and /ʔ/.

Sequences of consonant and /j/ and before /i/ palatalize, which then assimilate other consonants in the same word.

The dental fricative and clusters of it with stops become a dental stop, contrasting with the alveolar.

The vowels /ɛ/ and /e/ merge.

Change 1: All articles are dropped, period.
Change 2: Associated nouns are joined together.
Change 3: Genitive pronouns are prefixed to their possessees. Negatives become a prefix (n') on the verb.

First change: Subject pronouns are dropped. When a subject pronoun is part of a contraction, the rest of the contraction is attached to the front of the verb.

Second change: Infinitive "to" is dropped.

Third change: Syllabic consonants become sequences of /a/ followed by a sonorant. Obstruents are devoiced word-finally.
