Vowels
subscripts


        There are seven vowels in the alphabet:  Alesh, Ech, Elam, Imech, Nil, Umek, and Omnis.  Omnis does not appear in written form except when it is at the end of a word, or when another vowel preceeds it, where it is written as a small circle.  When two consonants are together without a vowel in between, there is a small curved horizontal line, called a imnter beneath the two letters linking them together.  If there is a vowel between the two consonants, the vowel is represented by a subscript.  If neither a vowelic subscript or an imnter appears between the two consonants, the presence of an omnis is assumed.   Also, when a vowel begins a word, there is usually a smooth breathing mark ' before the vowel.  If there is a rough breathing mark " before the vowel, the vowel should be moderately aspirated.  If a breathing mark is at the beginning of a word and there is no vowel immediately after it, then the presence of an omnis is again assumed.
