addendum: sounds

Addendum to my entries about sound and morphology:

There is also /h/. But .. it is usually silent and then a glottal stop (') takes its place inside of a word. Take it as auxiliary:

a) It preserves the basic CVC structure of a syllable.
b) It becomes audible when the speaker wants to avoid slurring syllables together, i.e. when speaking very fast.
Example: da'an is spoken as dahan to keep both syllables separate.
