Neragese is a XXX language of the Oranish language family originally spoken by the people of the island of Neragon in Alabon. The language is named after the XXX, one of the Veragian peoples that migrated to Neragon from Oranland.
The phonetics and phonology of the Neragese language differ from one dialect to another, usually without interfering with mutual communication. Phonological variation affects the inventory of phonemes (i.e. speech sounds that distinguish meaning), and phonetic variation consists in differences in pronunciation of the phonemes.
Most Neragese dialects share the same 25 consonant phonemes. The consonant inventory shown below is valid for Domican, and for Standard Neragese.

The pronunciation of vowels varies a great deal between dialects and is one of the most detectable aspects of a speaker's accent. The table below lists the vowel phonemes in Standard and Domican Neragese, with examples of words in which they occur from lexical sets compiled by linguists.
