[top]Introduction

(ķȐ'řš ʞ) Keru'rosu Ku is the native script for  Idenian. In Idenian, most consonant-vowel pairs contain some meaning by themselves. As such, the phonotactics only allow for a strict CV syllable structure with only Ñ 'ń' /n̥/ and Θ 'tj' /θ/ appearing in and only in the coda, with little exception. This is reflected in (ķȐ'řš ʞ) Keru'rosu Ku, as it is a mostly non-flexible abugida that only allows for consonant-vowel pairs.

The following tables display the meaning of each of the consonant-vowel pairs in Idenian.
