Here are a few symbols that effect how words are pronounced.
(') means syllable is accented.
(?) between syllable indicates glottel stop (as in o.k.)
(:) means vowel is held longer.
(*) pronounce carefully- can change meaning of the word.
o si yo (hello) Dto hi tsu (how are you?)
o s da (fine) ni hi na (and you?)
o s da dv (fine)
Ho Wa (alright!)
