Pategian has 4 main dialects:
p t ts tc k b d dz dq g ph th s c kh h f x z q m n l r lh rh j
/p t ts tʃ k b d dz dʒ g f θ s ʃ x h v ð z ʒ m n l r ɬ rʰ j/
a â e i o u y ả ẩ ẻ ỉ ỏ ủ ỷ /a ɑ e i o u ɨ a: ɑ: e: i: o: u: ɨ:/
Old Pategian had a pitch accent in long vowels which could be rising (written ả) or falling (written ạ). The distinction is neutralized in Modern Pategian.
No initial clusters, geminates allowed

Most ancient Pategian poetry was written in flexible quantitative meters reminiscent of Vedic Sanskrit, but a few authors have experimented with the stricter quantitative meters used in Sowaár poetry. Free verse and rhyming unmetric verse, influenced by Windermere poetry, are also common.
