The Iakan alphabet (iake talwu) is the creation of Isac Henningsson,
with help from friends. It is used to write the fictional language Iaka (iake
kimai). Both the alphabet and the language was born late 2005 and it
has no real use yet exept for writing secret messages and to converse.
The vowels are pronounced as follows: Ih as win,
Eh as in death, Uh = [ø],
Oh = [o:], and Ah as in mud.
We can be both a vowel and a consonant. It is pronounced
as in room before a consonant, and [w] before a vowel.
Sample text in Iakan
Nin nemiwu si seiwik pwkakima ateweng palowu.
Pwkakima tatnu fa otin fa iom ni tanaweng wainok.
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They
are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another
in a spirit of brotherhood.
