The Orundi Language

Orundi is currently my main conlanging project, so I thought I'd share what I have so far. It is spoken by a Bronze Age civilization.

/m n ɲ ŋ/ <m n ny nn>
/p t t͡ ɕ c k/ <p t ty ky k>
/ᵐb ⁿd ⁿd͡ʑ ᶮɟ ᵑɡ/ <mb nd ndy ngy ng>
/s ɕ ɬ h/ <s x hl h>
/z ɮ/ <z dl>
/l ʎ j w/ <l ll y w>
/a e i o u/ <a e i o u>

Syllable Structure: (C)(G)V(S)
Permitted Codae /n l/

I don't have any actual rules about stress, though I'm leaning towards penultimate or antepenultimate stress.

Here's a short vocabulary list I made:

ⁿde /ⁿde- 1st person

t͡ʃo- 2nd person

na- proximal demonstrative

ᵑɡo- medial demonstrative

ᵐbe- distal demonstrative

ja.ᵐba- eat

ᵐba.sa- make

ki.no- travel

ᶮɟa.mu- see

pa.lo- moon

ⁿd͡ʒa.la- river

ɬo.ko- food

ᵐba.za- dog

I don't have much grammar developed yet. All I know is that it is going to have a synthetic morphology and is primarily head marking.

This is all I have so far.
