Fijian alphabet[edit]

A B C D E F G I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W Y
a b c d e f g i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w y

The letters f, j and p are only used for loanwords. The letter b is pronounced /mb/; c is pronounced /ð/; d is pronounced /nd/; dr is pronounced /nr̃/; g is pronounced /ŋ/ (as in sing); q is pronounced /ŋg/ (as in finger); v is pronounced bilabially (/β/). Long vowels may be indicated in dictionaries by a macron (āēīōū) or by doubling (aa ee ii oo uu), but they are not usually differentiated at all in normal writing. —Stephen OMG i'm here Beautifel island sya gratule got r nah me have 1 island named foji my name foji named after my island foji yah no i'm kewl my freinds r mean and i hate them they R maddy and Tayla !!! they r !!!

discuss merge[edit]

This Articles East Fijian languages, West Fijian languages and related dialects of the Fijian Language I think should be merged with this Article Fijian Languages as really they discuss variations of the same topic and these other Language articles on the Fijian language are just small stubs and perhaps the Fijian language article should be changed to just "Language in Fiji" and cover all related languages in the Fiji Islands. feedback and thoughts on this matter.
