Netakavíhki people use this alphabet:

A - B - C - (Č) - D - E - F - G - H - I - J - K - L - Ł - M - N - Ñ - (Ň) - O - P - Q - R - S - (Š) - T - U - V - W - X - Y - Z - (Ž) - Å - '

Tones are not sorted as separate letters. When two or more words are distinguished by tone alone, the order is a - á - à - ä - â.

The affricate digraphs "dł", "dz", "dž", "tł" and "ts" are considered to be combinations of two letters.

Sometimes "p'", "t'", "c'", "k'" and "q'" are considered to be separate letters; sometimes they are considered to simply be combinations of two letters. Either way, ejectives are sorted after their pulmonic counterparts.


Uxy (0) - Anka (1) - Tåpas (2) - Svârjë (3) - Tàkvíkis (4) - Kòb (5) - Timemaster (6)

I suppose we can give "takavíhkiness points" to specific features (and combinations thereof), add those, and then somehow make that fit with the scale above :P

  • Having only one oblique case: +20
  • Overusing perpositions: +20
  • Being Timemasterdijålekt or Hortondijålekt: +50
  • Having only a gutturálki r: +5
    • Both gutturálki and alveolárki r: +3
  • Having two tones: +10
  • Not having tones at all: +20
  • Having four tones: +5
  • Uvular /χ/: +20
  • No ejectives: +20
  • Too many ejectives: +10
  • Lacking uvulars: +20
  • Ridiculous diphthong abuse: +20
  • Sounding like babytalk: +50
  • Having /ç/: +50
  • Syllabic consonants: +5
  • /kj/ > /c/: +5
  • Infinitive on -i: +5
  • Nasal vowels: +5

So then we get this:

  • Uxy: 13
  • Anka: 30
  • Tåpas: 48-75
  • Svârjë: 80
  • Tàkvíkis: 115
  • Kòb: 155
  • Timemaster: 140-225

Then divide this by the takavíhkiness constant, whose value is probably between 25 and 30, and you get roughly the same as on the original scale.


The above system works fine for Burenian, so now let's see if a Universal Language Takavíhkiness Scale (ULTS) can be made. Some useful criteria:

  • Phonology:
    • Presence of odd phonemes/phonemic distinctions.
    • Gaps.
    • Takavíhki phonotactics.
  • Morphology:
    • Being too irregular.
    • Being too mechanical.
    • Being a mess that pretends to be regular.
  • Syntax:
    • Should we consider certain word orders takavíhki?
    • Random exceptions.
  • Dijålektaqë and sister languages:
    • Being too different from other dijålektaqë/sister languages.
