The Xurnese language looks very interesting. Could you please give us some hints about its pronounciation?
Sure! Here's the phonology:
|stops||p (b)||t d||k g||i||u|
|affricates||c (dz)||ch j||(x)||e||o|
Thus: Cu peicurey jic otos shevarirp o zidzi "The editor is hated by his writers" is pronounced tsu pey-tsu-REY jits o-TOS she-va-RIRP o ZI-dzi.
(Note: There is a good deal of dialect variation; and of course ancient Axunashin had its own rules.)
