The letters shown below are meant to be pronounced each in one unique way. The letters shown in bold are the ones you need to get acquainted with since they are either pronounced different or have a new sound to English. Due to having less Latin letters than the sounds required three arrangements are made in two ways:
1. The letters with a dot above the letter are pronounced thicker such in D & Ḋ, H & Ḣ, S & Ṡ, K & Ḱ etc..
2. Ġ and Ḱ are used as shown below
3. Role/ stress-on all double letters.
4. The double vowels such as aa, ee, and oo are pronounced longer than single a, e or o.
