The Headache of Consonant Clicking

---

Geonosian boasts four... "unusual" consonants: a (click), a (horn), a (cluck), and a (tick). For the purposes of this fan-made Wiki, the K (or hard C) in Geonosian is pronounced in a (click) sound, the J is pronounced in a (horn) sound, and the Q is pronounced in a (cluck) sound. The X sound is pronounced in a shorter (click) sound, which, for simplifying purposes, will be called a (tick).

A double (click) can be used mark the end of a sentence.

A double (horn) can be used to mark an exclamation point.

A double (cluck) can be used to mark a comma, colon, or other pause in a sentence.

A double (tick) can be used to mark a question mark.

Pronunciation:

(Click) - made by placing the tip of the tongue on the roof of the mouth near the incisors and making a ‘tsk tsk’ sound

(Horn) - made by making a low, gutteral, "open-mouthed hum" sound, and rapidly rising the pitch

(Cluck) - made by placing the tip of the tongue against the roof of the mouth and snapping it downwards

(Tick) - made by placing the side of the tongue against the teeth and inhale, making a short clicking sound
