Random question, Iyionaku. I've been wondering for a while, what does the apostrophe mean in Yelian's orthography?

I used to think it marked non-initial stress, but I've seen examples that contradict that… the point being, I'm quite curious too.

Good question. In fact, those are two different symbols " ' " and " ʻ " (but I've always been too lazy to separate them [:D] ). <'> is a grammatical marker which is compulsory put between the definite articles a, u and æ respectively the preposition o, "of", and the corresponding noun. (Those compounds are always threated as one word, not as two.) <ʻ>, on the other hand, is the 23rd (and last) letter of the Yélian alphabet and represents the voiceless glottal plosive [ʔ].

If a word has both ' and ʻ in it, the <ʻ> is written as <h>. Good example from my last post: iʻeni [iˈʔeːni] - pepper --> un'iheni [ʊniˈʔeːni] - the pepper

@shimobaatar: Your thoughts were really close, as most of Yélian's nouns are bisyllabic, and stress is mostly on the penultimate syllable (otherwise marked with an acute), so the grammatical ' appears before the stressed syllable in about 50-60% of all nouns. This was the case in two words of my last post, an'olu and a'dehay. Counterexample: u'numelé [ʊnʊmeˈleː].

Thanks for both of your interest! I appreciate that a lot. [:)]
