In the official Cyrillic spelling, double/subsequent vowels mean that there is a glottal stop between them, e.g.:
кхаара = qa’ara as I spell it, [qʰɐʔər] ‘Wednesday’
ца хаьа = ca xä’a [t͡sʰə xæʔ] ‘doesn’t know’
еара = je’ara [jɛʔər] ‘Thursday’
I forgot about that.
Moving on, does anyone have any links to any texts in Chechen? Whether they are books, newspapers, or whatever?

Just flipped to a random page and saw the word for lifeguard.. к1елхьардакххархо
