Spelling Conventions

All linguistic forms are written in italics.

When representing word schemes:

C = consonant

R = resonant (r, l, m, n)

T = dental

K = occlusive

J = glide (, u̯)

H = any laryngeal or merged laryngeal

V = vowel

V̄ = long vowel

I = i, u

° = epenthetic or auxiliary vowel

(conventionally, the symbol ° under the vocalic resonants is placed before it in these cases)

# = syllabic limit
