Consonant Clusters

Syllables that begin with consonant clusters not accounted for in the chart above can be created by combining the final forms of the initial consonants with the symbol for the last consonant in the cluster paired with the vowel sound. For example, syllables starting with gw-, kw-, or k'w- begin with the final/isolated form of the first consonant followed by the appropriate W symbol:

gw kw k'w

gwa
ᐠᗕ
kwa
ᘁᗕ
k'wa
