The person who wrote this is not a fluent speaker; corrections welcome. The intention was for use in text-to-speech systems.

Below is the little table for the Portuguese Lojban orthography. Portuguese has some issues which may muck things up:

  1. Sequences such as VnC and VmC cause the vowel to nasalize and the /m to disappear. Try, e.g. "baanndo" or "baanndu".
  1. Unstressed vowels tend to get raised. You may need to try things like "eh" and "oh" in those circumstances. Happily, unstressed "o" kinda sounds like Lojban u.

a aa (Alternately try ah)

d d

e e (Try eh if this doesn't work)
