Lesson 1 – Alfabet
The alphabet of Fucatokk contains the same 26 letters of the modern English alphabet and no diacritics.
Each letter has one sound only and always keeps that sound. Words are spelt as they sound in the Fucatokk language.
Some of the letters, especially ‘q’ and ‘x’ have quite different values to those usually given in modern English, but most letters are not so surprising.
The punctuation marks and the numbers, other than where they abbreviate letters using the Fucatokk alphanumeric shorthand, follow typical European usage, except for the absence of capitalisation, which is perfectly acceptable form in Fucatokk.
Many people visiting this will know Esperanto, so here are the Esperanto equivalents of the Fucatokk letters:
a = a (Short. Long is ‘ey’)
b = b
c = cx (English ‘ch’ as in ‘church’)
d = d
e = e (Short) (more…)
