  • Example word:
        Tazaradiax "The Tarazedi"
    (From Tazarad - proper name for the star system Novi Tazarad + -i - adjectival suffix + -ax - article "the" suffix.)
  • Words contain one syllable per vowel. There are no diphthongs, however, interjections may be pronounced as glides.
  • A consonant is part of the following vowel's syllable except where the following vowel is part of a suffix.
    Thus:     Tazaradiax ta-za-rad-i-ax, not taz-a-rad-i-ax.
  • The last syllable of a root word before a suffix is stressed
    Thus:     Tazaradiax ta-za-RAD-i-ax
  • Suffixes containing    a and    i use the supplementary vowel pronunciation, e.g.     Tazaradiax; however the supplementary vowel characters are not used when writing, except in pronunciation guides and for loan words.
  • Example word:
        veltrax "The Storm"
    (From vel - openness, sky + -tr - "that which does" + -ax - article "the" suffix.)
  • Roots and suffixes do not merge with each other.
    Thus: VEL-tr-ax, not VEL-trax.
  • In informal dialect, the above rule may be broken.
    Thus: VEL-trax.
  • In speed dialect, consonants between other consonants may be discarded.
    Thus: VEL-rax.
