Yes, I know the phonology is unlike English. They joined words together to make it shorter, a common feature in their language.
I hope this is a jokelang, because that phonology looks like a literal attempt to use every weird symbol on the IPA chart. I thought Klingon was unnaturalistic... Also, you're supposed have them read it as-is, not with grammatical features added from other languages, otherwise my language would say "they with the reason the conscience-and endowed are" or something like that.
It is a jokelang. I can put this in an actual conlang

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

Modern Learned-Speech Wínlandisc

[ˈɑɫ ˌhɪ̯uːmən ˈbiːɪŋɡz‿aɚ ɪˌbɔɚn ˈfɹiː ənd ˈiːkwəl‿ɪn ˈdɪŋnɪte̝ ænd ˈɹæ̠ɪ̯tᵊs‖ ðæː aɚ‿ɪnˈdɒʊd wɪð ˈɹeːzən ˈænd ˈkʊnʃɪəns ənt‿ʃʊɫd ˈækt‿toˌwaɚdz ˈoːn‿ənˈʊðɚ ɪn ə ˈspɪɾɪt ɔv‿ˈbɹʊðɚhʊːd‖]

This is what RP would sound like in the Southern Kingdom of Wínland.
Some of the archaic features of (Southern) Wínlandisc have been carried over: The past participle [ɪ-] and an almost suppressed inflectional schwa [ᵊ].
All rhotic schwas [ɚ] = [ᵊɻ ~ Vːɻ] before vowels, [əɻ] elsewhere.


A Southerner would most likely dismiss the modern English spellings as ‘Highland-Northern’ and complain about Modern English (especially Cockney) pronunciations being ‘the most vulgar and broad from anywhere, especially from the Noth-West of the Northern Magellanian Confederacy, as well as Luchden’.

This is my attempt at adapting the beginning of the UDHR in my idiolect English to the phonology of Project Steppe. Hopefully I didn't make any mistakes. I'm not sure, in all honesty, what I was expecting, but I can say it wasn't this. I also included a transcription of the "accent" in Project Steppe's romanization.

<All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.>

/ɔl kiˈjumɑn piˈjiŋsɑ ɑl ˈpɔlnɑ ˈpɑli ˈɛntɑ ˈikʷɑl in tikˈniti ˈɛntɑ laˈjitsɑ || sɛj ɑl ɛnˈtɑwtɑ wis ˈlisɑn ˈɛntɑ kɑnˈsɑnsɑ ˈɛntɑ sut ˈɛktɑ tuˈwɑtsɑ wɑn ɑˈnɑsɑ in ɑ sɑˈpilit ɑp pɑlɑˈsɑkut/

<Ol kijuman pijiŋsa al polna pali enta ikwal in tikniti enta lajitsa. Sej al entavta vis lisan enta kansansa enta sut ekta tuvatsa van anasa in a sapilit ap palasakut.>

I'm not great at this sort of thing, but here's my best attempt.

Nereifa

[oːl ˈju.mɛn ˈbi.jiŋs aːɾ bɔan fɾiː end ˈiː.kʋal in diˈgni.ti end ɾajts. ðej aːɾ ˈen.daud ʋið ˈɾiːzɛn end ˈkɔn.ʃɛns end ʃud ˈe.kɛt ˈtu.ʋɔts ʋɔn eˈnɔ.ða in eː ˈspi.ɾit oːf ˈba.ɾa.ða.ud]

In transcript, that would be

Ool yumen biyiŋs aar boan frii end ikwal in digniti end raits. Dhei aar endaud widh riizen end konshens end shud eket tuwots won enodha in ee spirit oof baradha-ud.

That hurt to type out

I Kaita orthography (I will come back and put the phonetics in):

An yuwan wiiyinsi aa woon θinii an iikuwan in tikiniti an rayci. Θey aa entaawiti wiθi yiison an konsiyensiyansi an suutu akiti towooci won anaθa in a siwiti o woθahuuti

And thats allowing for o and u to precede coda nasals and w, which they don't natively (see the Kaita thread). Including this, the result comes out as:

An yiwan wiiyinsi aa waan θinii an iikiwan in tikiniti an rayci. Θey aa entaawiti wiθi yiisan an kansiyensiyansi an suutu akiti tewooci wan anaθa in a siwiti o woθahuuti.

Both of these are quite thick, though. For those with more familiarity with English, something more like this would be more likely:

Al yuwan wiiyins aa woon θrii an iikuwal in tiniti an rayc. Θey aa entawt wiθ riison an konsiyens an suut akit tuwaac wan anaθa in a swirit o wuraθahut

This Edyssian has probably been trying to learn the language for a while, both written and spoken, although the unfortunate syllable structure and lack lf diversity in syllable final phonemes has made them creative with pronunciation. Luckily the Edyssian has less trouble with the vowels.

:con: Edyssian
ɑl hiumɛn bɛiŋăs ɑr boɾᵊn ɸɛ̆ˈri æn ikual ɪn dɪnˈnɪti æn rɑjtăs. Zej ɑr ɛnˈdauˈduɪs rizɔn æn kɔnt͡ʃiɛnz æn ʃʊːdækᵊtuːɑɾdăs uɑn ɛnɔzɛr ɪn ɑːspirɪˈtɔɸă băɾɔzɛrhudă

The Daorian in a similar situation laughs in the face of the mighty clusters, but then faces the unfortunate curse of vowel harmony (and the lack of a voiceless bilabial stop). In the end though, much better! I am happy.

:con: Daorian

Also, I usually don't have [ð] and/or [θ] in a conlang unless they're allophones or they're a big part of the family (my nascent semlangs come to mind). I was always led to believe they were weird, uncommon sounds that liked to dissapear. Was I wrong? And are they really that common, given that an individual conlanger's languages may be in their own conworld and not ours, and therefore not add to our world's census total of languages with those phonemes?
