Narkhokul Narkhokul

The Narkhokul alphabet was created by Jon Molnar to write a fictional language. The name Narkhokul means "the signs of the land," in reference to the fictional place where Draphei, the language Narkhokul is used to write, is spoken. That place is Narthrall, part of the fictional world Jon and others collaborate on as a setting for stories and role-playing games.

Narkhokul vowels


Most consonants are pronounced as they are in English. The non-obvious ones, /th/, /sh/, /kh/, and /r/, should be pronounced as in "thin," "ship," "loch," and "red," respectively. Alternatively, /r/ can be pronounced as an alveolar trill, as in Spanish rojo ("red") or Russian рыба ("fish"), or any similar rhotic sound. It is also permissible to pronounce any unvoiced consonant with its voiced form, e.g. /t/ can be pronounced like [d], /f/ like [v], and so on.

The vowels; /a/, /e/, /i/, /o/, and /u/; are pronounced as in "father," "pet," "pizza," "bone," and "sue," respectively, but they may alternatively be pronounced with any similar vowels as long as they do not become ambiguous.
