In the recovered description, the apostrophes are said to represent glottalization. Ai, ii, ea, oa are falling diphthongs, where -i and -a are pronounced /ɨ̯/ and /ə̯/, respectively. In some pronunciations these diphthongs are unbroken long vowels (thus ā for ai).
Based on Naryan interpretations of foreign words, Naryan speakers are known to lack /l/ and tend to hear it as their /r/. Foreign consonant clusters are broken up with an epenthetic /o/ or /u/, and the same vowels may be used to keep a consonant from ending a syllable—or the consonant may be deleted. (But the sequence k'h and final n appear to be licit.) The only fricatives appear to be /s/ and possibly /f/; /v/ is heard as /b/, and /θ/ as /s/ or a dental stop. Wu is a licit syllable; it's uncertain if yi is likewise.
