First Line: Glottal
a, A, e, s, h are pronounced with the front of the tongue lying right behind the teeth. s and h are pronounced like their English counterparts. The first three letters in this line are vowels.



ooraa = a
airaa = A
eeree = e
sassa = s
hahaa = h



Second Line: Velars
k, K, g, G are pronounced with the front of the tongue lying on the mouth's bottom. You should raise the back of your tongue slightly, closing the throat, and opening it just before sound is made. The last letter in this line has a nasal sound.



kakaa   = k
khakhaa = K
gagaa   = g
ghaghaa = G
ngangaa = |

thathaa = T
dadaa    = f
dhadhaa = F
naanaa   = x



Fifth Line: Dentals
