ALPHABETIC ORDER

a b c e f h i j j k l m n ŋ o p r s š t t. u v w y Y ? • H X C V
a b c e f h i j jcup k l m n ŋ o p r s š t t. u v w y Y ? • H X  C V

[Editor’s note: Penutian linguists today transcribe “j” as “y,” and “y” as “.” (Silverstein IJAL 45:198 (1979)). “?” is a glottal stop (printed without a dot in the original text). It separates vowels that you don’t combine. “•” follows a long vowel. The English form for “č,” “ŋ,” “š” and “t.” are “ch,” “ng,” “sh,” and “t,” respectively. See the Phonology for more information on the alphabet used here. —dea.]
