PhonologyEdit

Consonants Edit

Ök has the biggest variation regarding ingressives and clicks among the Fluatian languages. However, there is no dental nasal.The ingressive version of /h/ is additionally dental (the sound of pain).

VowelsEdit

Ök likes to write <ö>'s. The Ök grammarians used <ö> to define the "most central vowel of all times" (indeed there is actually no /ə/ in Ök, but /ɘ/ is much more centered than other vowels of Fluatian languages). Other new vowels for which they couldn't find a suitable representation have been expressed in reference to <ö> (ö-centrism). The second innovation is <u>, because they couldn't represent it in terms of <ö>.
