I just edited the above post to add consonant romanization. A few notes:

1) I decided to go with < !t !k !l > for the clicks rather than a similar system I've seen, which is < t! k! l! > etc. I felt that the ! before the consonant looks better for some reason. To me, having the ! first says "HEY, THIS IS DIFFERENT!", which indicates the click, and then the following consonant says what the place of articulation is. Also, the syllable structure allows stops in coda, so this clears any ambiguity as to what is a coda or onset.

2) The glottalized clicks are indicated with the same notation as ejectives, even though they are not ejective. Since ejectives & implosives are related to glottalization, this seemed to be a fair representation.

3) I'm debating on whether to use <c> or <ch>.

<c>. It reduces word length.

I would go with <c> simply because I prefer <c> over <ch> except when aspiration is indicated, where then I would prefer <ch>.

Thanks for the reply! I'll get back to this in a few days when I'm back from vacation and have a full PC.

Having a conlanging writer's block lately, mostly due to a lack of creative ideas for pronouns in Jinn. Bleh.

Mostly bumping to make sure I don't lose the info in the thread.

This should be moved into the permanent C&C forum.

Jin: Syllable Structure

Technically, Jin's syllable structure can be seen as (C)V(V)(C). In practice, it's mostly CV, and there are no consonant clusters in onsets or codas.

Initial syllables can omit the onset consonant.

Final syllables of a word can have a coda consonant, and the "linker" prepositional clitic al- also has a coda consonant.

Onsets: All consonants are allowed as onsets.

Codas: Clicks are not allowed in coda.

All syllables will have only 1 vowel quality (i, a, or u), and most will have 1 register. Words of 1 syllable may have a contour of 2 registers, depending on tense. The orthography for this is just 2 of the same vowel with different diacritics, such as <âa>, <üú>, etc.
