OOOOOOH! Thank you! I would post the Jibu script but I haven't scaned it yet and my scanner is broken. But here it is in the Latin script:

Vowels:

a e i o u æ

Consonants:

b p d g k h l m n ng q r s š t v w y z ž ch ts

Other Letters:

ai oi ei ou œ ua

j f

Note:The other letters that contain vowels are seperate letters in the Jibu language. The letters 'ch' are written with the letter 'c' with the v like diacritic over it in the Latin script. The letter 'ts' can be written as 'ts' or with the Polish letter 'z' with the dot over it.

I think, but it is more notable in thing(for the Θ) so I'm editing that.
(in spanish it would be...

Θ - gracias
Δ - adios)

Yeah, both "this" and "the" have the same [ð] sound. "Gracias" is fine as an example in Castillian Spanish, but it isn't in most dialects, so I'd suggest using an English example like "think", which has the sound you're thinking of in most English dialects.

This is how it is suppose to be, I believe.

Θ = this / think / thing / thanks
Δ = these / that / the / those / there.

But of course in many dialects you almost see no difference, and in others you see 'this' pronounced as 'dis' same as 'these', and 'thing' like 'ting'. So it is hard to tell.
For my illustraTion I think I'm gonna use 'think' and 'thanks' VS 'that' and 'they'.
Thanks.

Toytonic Alphabet

Postby Lexicon » 2007-03-06, 9:19

Here's the alphabet for my conlang - Toytonic.

A few explanations:

Vowels sounds are in the wiki.

/j/ is the same as English
/c/ is like the ch in church.
/[s]S[/s]/ is 'sh'
/[s]Z[/s]/ is 'zh' as in azure

the last two symbols on the pairs are 'thorn' (voiceless /th/) and 'eth' (voiced /th/)

If a symbol has a mirror image, that sound is the final version of the regular sound (leg versus Fable, new versus when, red versus fibre, etc

I hope you like it:

Thanks a lot.

Yes I had to create a couple of the letters. I still haven't gotten them into a font file/keyboard layout (have to learn how). I am trying to make my conlang as absolute (meaning everything means only one thing)as possible and creating an absolute alphabet was one of those steps.

Check out the wiki, it explains the alphabet and its sounds:

http://home.unilang.org/wiki3/index.php/Toytonic

The organization of the letters is important because the patters repeat throughout the language (check out the number system in the wiki).

This is actually a conlang partly based on being phonetically aware of your own language.

Lexicon, why do you use "r" in the Wiki even though you have shown that "R" is the lower-case version of "R"?

Mainly just trying to make unicode work. I'm working on how to deal with a couple of the symbols which certain websites and programs don't seem to like.

Hopefully I'll have that fixed in the next few days.

Ah, okay, I just wanted to know, if that had been intentional or not.

Good luck with your work! :)

short /k/, backwards /r/, small 'gamma' and backwards /n/ from cyryllic
