Skolt Sami Language - Writing System

Writing System

Skolt Sami uses the ISO basic Latin alphabet with the addition of some special characters:

А а Â â B b C c Č č Ʒ ʒ Ǯ ǯ D d
Đ đ E e F f G g Ǧ ǧ Ǥ ǥ H h I i
J j K k Ǩ ǩ L l M m N n Ŋ ŋ O o
Õ õ P p R r S s Š š T t U u V v
Z z Ž ž Å å Ä ä ˊ

The letters Q/q, W/w, X/x, Y/y and Ö/ö are also used, although only in foreign words or loans.

The caron marks postalveolars (Š, Ž, Č, Ǯ ) and palatal sounds (Ǧ and Ǩ ). The letters Đ and Ǥ mark fricatives, . The letters Ʒ and Ǯ mark voiced affricates. Skolt Sami has a separate glyph, Ŋ, for the velar nasal ("eng"). Additionally, suprasegmental palatalization is marked by a free-standing acute accent (´) added after the vowel.

A short period of voicelessness or h, known as preaspiration, before geminate consonants is observed, but this is not marked, e.g., joˊkke ‘to the river’ is pronounced . The epenthetic vowels are not phonemic or syllabic, and are thus not marked, e.g., mieˊll ‘sandbank’ cf. mielle ‘to the mind’.

    Frances Wright (1795–1852)

    I’ve tried to reduce profanity but I reduced so much profanity when writing the book that I’m afraid not much could come out. Perhaps we will have to consider it simply as a profane book and hope that the next book will be less profane or perhaps more sacred.
    Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961)
