Dezaking has a syllable structure of (C)V(N), unless it's the last syllable of a word, then it's (C)V(N)(C). All nasals nasalize the previous vowel, and isn't pronounced unless the next letter is a vowel. So, "An" is /ɒ̃/ while "Ana" is /ɒ̃n̪ɒ/. At the end of a word, consonants are silent unless the first letter of the next word is a vowel or it's the end of a sentence (which in this case, it's always devoiced).

Background

Dezaking started as a language on Dezaking Island in southern modern-day Rovenia. Three different countries claimed Dezaking Island as theirs, and a language evolved from those three languages called "Deszanika" (Dezaking Language). When Rovenia formed from those three countries, Dezaking was chosen to be the official language, and it was kept when Rovenia became Congaval.
