Pronunciation / sounds of Greenlandic

Postby nighean-neonach » 2007-02-15, 10:19

I was wondering if it would make sense to explain the pronunciation a bit... I still think it would be best to get some of the audio materials and listen to Greenlandic a lot, but maybe we could collect some info here, including IPA?
ilaana, would you maybe like to write something? Otherwise I would just do a sort of summary from the stuff in my books, and explain the most important things about unusual sounds, intonation, stress etc.
