Order

In these documents, the order of letters used in word lists is:

 a b c d(+dd) ð e f g h i l m n ñ o p q r s š t(+tt) u v w x y z

The cúsibi prefer the order as indicated in the phonology document, which is roughly by series, front-to-back, vowels last; however, the tt and dd phonemes have no separate letterals:

 p b t d x c q g  f v ð s(+ss) š z h  m n(+nn) ñ  w l y r  i e a o u
