Due to popular demand and my own insanity, here is the basic pronunciation guide for names and places in the Sister Continents. At the end, I am hoping to connect links to some of the major characters and places, so that you can get a better idea of how I hear these names in my head when writing.

a = cat    â  = fate
e = let    ê = be
i = fit    î = kite
o = rot    ô = so
u = run    û = flu
œ = oy in boy
c = ch as in choke
x = sh as in shine
ks = x as in exit (pretty much doesn’t exist in their language)

Other than that, follows basic english rules for consonants.
