Some of the consonant sounds are denoted by small capitals and Italics; all other Italic letters are silent. So many of the silent vowels are printed in Italics, as seemed necessary to convey the sounds of the syllables. The final e preceded by and a mute is always silent. Where e final lengthens the syllable, it is printed in Roman letters. G is soft before e, i, and y-and i and y, ending an unaccented syllable, sound like e long, unless otherwise noted.

*C before a, o, and u, is hard, like k; before e, i, and y, soft like &.
