This new language that I am creating (as you may have noticed) has a few... differences from English, Spanish, French, and hell, even Na'vi from Avatar (which inspired me).

Word modifiers dictate how you pronounce certain syllables in a given word.

"!" = An exclamation point indicates that you must emphasize the previous letter. (Example: Sk!allí - Pronounced SKK-all-eeyie)

"'" = An apostrophe indicates a slight pause. (Example: The word O'tah (Under) is pronounced OO--Tah)

"." = A period indicates that you must slur the two letters it appears between. (Example: The word Sw.ia (Tree) is pronounced Swayee-ah)

"=" = An equals sign indicates you must hold the previous letter. (Example: The word S=íü (Sea) is pronounced Ssss-eeyie-ooway)

":" = A colon indicates that you must staccato the previous letter. (Example: The word T:as (Rock) is pronounced Tt-ass)

"¡" = The upside down exclamation point is used at the end of a sentence to indicate it is exclamatory.

"?" = The question mark is used the same as in English. To indicate interrogatory statements.

"*" = The asterisk is used to indicate a command, or imperative sentence.

"·" = The interpunct (Japanese period) is used to indicate a full sentence stop.

"," = The comma is used to indicate the end of a statement or an idea, not the end of a sentence.

New Language: Sk!allí

I am inventing a new language (and not the stupid kind where you just replace English words with made-up words). This is a structured language similar to Spanish and Na'vi, with a little French and Japanese-sounding sounds.

Over the next few days, weeks, and months I will post more info on this language.

Today is the Alphabet and Pronounciations of the letters by themselves. (Such as in Spanish, the letter "W" is pronounced "dobleh-beh" but in sentences it is still pronounced "wuh" or "weh")

Aa - Ah
Bb - Beh
Cc - Zee
Dd - Deh
Ee - Ee
Ff - Effa
Gg - Jeh
Hh - Aytch
Ii - Aye/Ie (as in Aye, Aye Captain)

Kk - Keh
Ll - Ell
Mm - Em
Nn - Enno
Oo - Ooh
Pp - Peh
Qq - Queh (Kweh)
Rr - Arr

Uu - Yoo
Vv - Vee
Ww - Wah
Xx - Exeh (Eckseh)
Yy - Why
