Æ /ɛ̄/ is a tonal Wiobic language.

Introduction

Æ is the tonal language which I always wanted in Tricin - one evolved from a nontonal, vaguely Germanic language. It has several obvious nods to Danish, such as the spelling, stød as part of a register tone system, and pharyngealized vowels.

Phonology

Consonants

p t tj k f s sj h m n nj ng l zj r v j

Vowels

Vowels: a e i o u ø æ å æ̊ ů /a e i o ɨ ø ɛ ɔ œ~ɶ u/ + pharyngealized versions, written ar er ir or ur ør ær år æ̊r ůr /aˤ eˤ iˤ oˤ ɨˤ øˤ ɛˤ ɔˤ œˤ~ɶˤ uˤ/

Use Tíogall-ish aesthetic with pharyngealized vowels

Tones

Æ has four register phonations or tones:

  • Unmarked = modal, mid
  • ƨ = stød
  • з = Breathy
  • ч = checked
