The First Series of Icecubic Vowels

Five Base Vowel Letters

Hey, mis amigos! Sorry for letting you waiting for so long. And I’m honored to announce the naissance of the first five base vowels, which are a-base, i-base, u-base, o-base, and e-base.

First, let’s take a look at how we defined the base vowels. Here goes the IPA chart for vowels.

IPA Chart Vowels

As shown in the chart.

i y ɨ ɪ ʏ belong to i-base;

u ɯ ʉ ʊ belong to u-base;

e ø ɘ ɛ œ ɜ ə belong to e-base;

o ɤ ɵ ɔ ʌ ɞ belong to o-base;

a ɶ æ ɒ ɑ ɐ belong to a-base.

Now I’m going to introduce the scripts of each of these five base vowels.

A-BASE

Default pronunciation[1]: /a/

Marine biological letter name[2]: Nautilae

O-BASE

Icecubic letter: TBD

Evolvable pronunciations: /ɤ ɵ ɔ ʌ ɞ/

U-BASE

Default pronunciation: /u/

English letter name: Anglerfish

Icecubic letter: TBD

Evolvable pronunciations: /ɯ ʉ ʊ/

Note

  1. Each letter has a default pronunciation. Though accent may change from region to region, Icecubic doesn’t require a precise pronunciation. That’s why we use the word ‘default’ instead of ‘standard’, etc.
  2. Each letter has at least three names, a marine biological name, which is named after the various marine species in Latin; an English name, or in the other natural languages; and an Icecubic name. Since the Icecubic language is still being developed, the Icecubic names are yet to be determined.
