Notes on the diacritics

The diacritics are shown with a special 'place-holder' symbol which has no phonetic value but merely 'carries' a vowel when the vowel is at the beginning of a word, or (rarely) right after another vowel.

Notes on punctuation

Shown are the five kinds of stops in Serian attached to the letter Pa. The first four are used much as periods, question marks, and exclamation points in English. The fifth is a 'stronger' mark, used in poetry to denote ends of stanzas, in books to show chapter ends, and placed at the ends of all documents.
