all consonants are to be pronounced carefully and completely. in linglo a 6th vowel can be used where two adjacent consonants are difficult to separate when spoken completely. imagine a square, the vowel “i” could be at the top left corner, “a” at the bottom left and “u” at the top right. “e” could be half way between “i” and “a”, “o” would be half way between “u” and the bottom right corner. now imagine an unclear vowel in the middle of the square. this is “schwa (sva)” represented by an upside down lower case/small “e” in I.P.A. . this could be used short and quiet between difficult pairs of consonants. the word accent falls on the vowel before the last consonant. capital letters are not essential and are omitted in pure linglo but some writers like them and they can have their uses. so, capitals can be allowed as the first letter in a sentence and to start words that are unlikely to be found in a general dictionary. “Robin” is a man’s name but “robin” is a species of bird, “Smith” is an english surname “smith” is a person who makes things.
