Ebbiu Ebbiu

Ebbiu script - consonants



Vowels are described by where they are articulated with regards to the tongue position in the mouth. The tongue is positioned forward in the mouth for front vowels like i & e whereas the tongue is positioned towards the back of the mouth for back vowels like u & o. Furthermore the tongue is positioned at the roof of the mouth for high vowels like i & u whereas the tongue is positioned relatively lower for vowels like e & o and lower still for a. Vowels are also distinguished by long-tense vowels, a, e, i, o, and u compared to short-lax vowels, ɪ, ʊ, and ε. Long-tense vowels are written with a ‘tense’ circle whereas the short-lax vowels are written with a more ‘lax’ oval shape. Vowels occupy five points on the vowel ring relative to the place of articulation.
