About Proto-North-Mahavic A proto-language of the Mahavic family, distinguished from its sisters by lack of genitives and back unrounded vowels (except /ɑ/), and the presence of voiced stops and fricatives, nasalized vowel series, palatal series, and lots of affricates. Sound changes begin contributing to phonological noun genders that appear in daughter languages. Vowel harmony (front/back) continues to apply to all vowels except /i e/.

Orthography note: both <ou> and <uu> mark /ou/. <oo> is /o:/. For /u:/, use <uo>. The same is true of front counterparts <ei ii ee ie> /ei ei e: i:/ and <öü üü öö üö> /øy øy ø: y:/. Complete loss of Old Mahavic /uo ie yø/ diphthongs.
