Reverse Romanization Game

Post by CMunk » 18 Oct 2014 19:02

The reverse of the Romanization Game, that I have participated so eagerly in.

One posts a romanization (alphabetically for the freest possible analysis), and the next posts a possible phonology for that alphabet.

Example:

Alphabet:
A À B Ch D E F G H I Ì J K L M N Ñ O Ò P R S Sh Sj T U Ù V W Y Z (30 graphemes)

Possible answer:
/m n ŋ/ <m n ñ>
/pʰ p tʰ t kʰ k/ <p b t d k g>
/ɸ β s z ʃ ʒ ʂ ʐ x h/ <f v s z sj j sh r ch h>
/l j w/ <l y w>

/i ɪ ʊ u/ <i ì ù u>
/e o/ <e o>
/ɛ ɔ/ <è ò>
/æ a/ <à a>

Next:
A Ã B C D Dh E F G Gh H I J K Kh L M N O Õ P Q R Rh S T Th U V W X Z (32 graphemes)

You can tell the same lie a thousand times,
But it never gets any more true,
So close your eyes once more and once more believe
That they all still believe in you.

You saw through my plan. I was hoping someone would use prenasalised voiced plosives [:)] (although in my head <c> and <j> were also plosives)

Some might know this, please don't answer then. I want to get new inspiration.
