Some Ldonjaman language.

Sound changes

Sound changes from Ancient Varquun to Modern Varquun:
Initial (h)VyV, (h)VwV- > jV, wV- (h-: low; no h-: high)
More /h/ loss: Vh > V:, mh, nh, ŋh, lh, rh > mm, nn, ŋŋ, ll, rr
Vowel system changes: /i u a i: u: a: e: o: aj aw/ > /e u ə i ɨ a iə uə ɚ o/
A tone split based on pharyngealization: CˁV > CV(creaky) > CV(high) (hV > V(low), initial V- > V(high))
word-final pharyngealized consonants merge with the nonpharyngealized consonants; i and ɨ become lowered to e and o before historical ll
1. adj > /àdʒ/
2. fisj > /fèʃ/
3. iyav > /íjə̀v/
4. ŋŋuzzan > /ŋúzə́n/
5. túl > /tɨ̀l/
6. kkayr > /kɚ́r/
7. bbutja > /bútʃə̀/
8. llíva > /wívə̀/
9. ulltta > /ótə̀/
X. yáŋŋu > /jàŋú/
E. hanay > /ə̀nɚ̀/
10. kín > /kìn/
(Also I'll find some way to get pitch accent into Chick Corean)
