[ɑ ɛ i o ʊ], in that order. This follows the principle of "closest match", with Esling-centric reference values. It also omits any suprasegmentals, which cannot be meaningfully transcribed on such a small corpus. "o" is a toss-up, the alternative being [ɔ]

  • I think it might be something like [ö] or maybe even [ɵ]. Feb 12, 2022 at 20:21
