Consonants are formed by combining anatomical bases with featural diacritics indicating the manner of articulation and voicing. Anatomical bases include bilabial, labiodental, linguodental, alveolar, post-alveolar, retroflex, palatal, velar, uvular, pharyngeal/epiglottal, glottal, labial-velar, labio-palatal, palato-velar, linguo-labial, rhotics, laterals, and sibilants. Voicing is shown by 0-3 dots below, representing unvoiced, voiced, aspirated, and creaky/murmur. A caret below represents ejectives, which may also be voiced or aspirated. Manner of articulation is shown by top diacritics, which represent (in the order shown below) nasal, plosive, fricative, approximants (no top diacritic), affricates, implosives, clicks, nasal clicks, trills, and tap/flaps.

Vowels are procedurally generated and mapped according to several factors including F1/F2 frequency and pattern readability. Bottom diacritics represent a shift (higher, lower, central). Nasal and rhotic diacritics may be placed above any vowel (as in ɚ/ɝ).
