Drake has a fairly standard set of vowel positions, /a e i o u/. The vowels /a i u/ may be short or long.
|High||i iː||u uː|
Any vowel may also have creaky voice applied: /a̰ a̰ː ḛ ḭ ḭː o̰ ṵ ṵː/.
It's unclear how /ʃ/ manages to survive on its own (or if it actually does exist as a phoneme), and whether the retroflex series is actually supposed to be retroflex; they might, perhaps, be palatal, but all I'm certain of is that my notes explicitly state them to be at a different POA than /ʃ/. Many (all?) consonants may be geminated.
Though /h/ was still represented in writing, it was not pronounced in the speech of most; it does not continue into the later ages of the language.
|/n/||r||noġeḍor||/noɣèðor/||"of a seed"|
Drake has a pitch accent on the penultimate syllable (2R). When the penult is long, it is a circumflex or falling accent; when it is short, it is grave; in monosyllables with an accent the accent is acute.
