Phones
 

All spoken languages use systems of sounds (called a phonology), and most of these aren't anything like English, including, hopefully, the conlang that you'll soon have. This section should help you.

What's in this section?[edit]

The parts of this section are:

  • Phones: The difference between phones and phonemes, and between consonants and vowels.
  • Syllables: The units of sound that can be pronounced.
  • Phonotactics: How sounds can be arranged into syllables.
  • Sandhi rules: How morphemes may change their sound because of their neighbors.
