I plan to have two main kinds of words in L'ewa. I plan to have content and
particle words. The content words will refer to things, properties, or actions
run) and the particle words will change how the
grammar of a sentence works (such as
the or prepositions).
The main kind of content word is a root word, and they will be in the following forms:
- CVCCV (/ʒa.sko/)
- CCVCV (/lʔ.ɛwa/)
Particles will mostly fall into the following forms:
- V (/a/)
- VV (/ai/)
- CV (/ba/)
- CVV (/bai/)
Proper names should end with consonants, but there is no hard requirement.
L'ewa is a stressed language, with stress on the second-to-last (penultimate) syllable. For example, the word "zasko" would be pronounced "ZAsko".
Syllables end on stop consonants if one is present in a consonant cluster. Two stop consonants cannot follow eachother in a row.
