||The syllabification is when there are two different vowels, as in "péa [ˈpe.a]" (this)
- ^ "g", when is before the letter "u", is pronounced "w"
- ^ "k", when is before the letter "u", is pronounced kʷ
- ^ "ᵑ͡g", when it is before the letter "u", is pronounced ᵑ͡gʷ
- ^ The glottal stop is also used at the beginning of words that begin with a vowel.
