Looks pretty good to me. I only noticed two things in regards of phonology. Allophone are written within squared brackets , the slashes // are used for phonemes; and the RP pronunciation of <sew> is /səʊ/, not /sɛʊ/, so I'm not sure if it's a good example for your /ɛʊ/ diphthong. It may be better if you use Australian [æʊ] in <town> or <now> since /æ/ is, I think, closer to /ɛ/ than to /ə/. Oh, and the glottal stop occurs only dialectally in RP, not as a standard pronounciation, or in Cockney, for example.razlem wrote:Finally finished this damned grammar guide.
Now I just need critiquing. If anyone would like to go through it and tell me what they think, that would be fantastic

For words like that, especially when they've been borrowed into a lot of languages, you might use "international" or something similar.razlem wrote:"allergy", for example, uses Greek roots, but was coined by an Austrian doctor in 1906. Would it be accurate to say the Angos root 'alegi' is a Greek root?
