From the author: “It is important to read chapter 2 on phonology to understand how the sound system of the language works. It is very important to note that I believe that Atong HAS NO DIPHTHONGS and that the glottal stop is NOT a phoneme. The Atong orthography in the dictionary might be misleading with regard to these aspects of the phonology.”
