  • The vowels (except the i) are formed by the letter O (oof) and have the largest points (granponts) that are positioned in their corresponding places. The front vowels have two points (pequenponts) below or above the "oof", or one point on the left of the "oof". The back vowels have one point on the right of the "oof".
  • Some consonants are formed by the addition of a caron: j = g with caron, p = b with caron), t = d with caron and z = s with caron. The consonant v is formed by the addition of a macron on b.
