Short vowels are represented as in the IPA; long vowels take an acute accent.

Ballistic Phonation

$LANG features ballistic phonation of its syllables. Orthographically this is represented as a grave accent (for short vowels) and as a circumflex (for long vowels). For the purposes of this article, in the IPA this is represented as two vertical lines below the vowel (using /a/ as an example, //).


Syllables in $LANG are C(w)V.

Phonological Processes

Two main phonological processes are of note in $LANG.

  • Vowel lengthening occurs when a preceding vowel is lengthened.
  • Lenition occurs when an obstruent is voiced (and, if the obstruent is a plosive, becomes a fricative or, in the case of /k/, /ɰ/).
