This is a short guide on how to pronounce every word created for the setting. Please note that each letter or diphthong represents only one sound so there is no ambiguity. Also a word of warning, the IPA represented here is probably not quite right for a number of reasons but it will be fixed soon and in the meantime should just give you a general idea of what to expect.
