This site contains some drills intended to help with memorization and recognition of the symbols of Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics. The focus is on the syllabic characters used in East Cree.
The exercises are for fun and not intended for instruction. They may contain inaccuracies. All errors are mine. I am not a speaker. The sounds are approximate and are there only to assist in memorization of the syllabics. Please refer to the East Cree site for authoritative pronunciations and grammar.
- 'p' is more like 'b'
- 'k' is more like 'g'
- 't' is more like 'd'
- 'ch' is more like 'j'
- final 'u' is more like a long 'o'
- 'waa' in combinations like 'shwaa', 'ywaa' etc. is more like a long 'o'
