Downloadable PDF chart of the sounds of the Konkow language. They are grouped into consonants and vowels and further grouped how they are pronounced. When possible, an example is given to show a similar sound in English. Examples of Konkow words which use all the sounds are also given. You may notice that there are a few sounds that are not present in English like the imploded and glottalized consonants. There is also a glottal stop which precedes vowels, and a semi colon used to distinguish long vowels. We also use stress marks to show where to put the accent on vowels.

Some kinds of sentences will put first and second person on the main verb, this is not the case for simple declaratives. First and second person are normally marked on the auxiliary verb, not on the main verb; and the auxiliary interacts in interesting ways with the pronoun system. (Sentences in third person are unmarked for person, and a simple verb in 3rd person can, unlike for first or second person, be interpreted as a declarative sentence.) Putting a person-marker on a main verb is always interpreted as something other than a simple declarative. For example, c’e-s (see-1st.person) does not translate as “I see,” but rather “Let me see” or “”I’d better look”. We present here the (usually) intransitive verb sol (sing).
