I really would like to have a few varieties of To'ul'hoss to point to, so I'm sure your inventory can be one of them! Come to think of it, are there any sounds listed that look like they might be a...

I'm putting notes together! Largely a guide to what sounds they can make and how, which should be useful for looking at how the language evolved and for interpreting all those non-To'ul'hoss words. ...

And in the case of To'ul'h languages, I'd opine that the best starting point is to lay out their articulatory phonetics and then the phonology, so we have groundwork for what their sounds are! We can...
