I'm finding "long" and "short" confusing, I think because I
instinctively pronounce nahuatl in spanish. And I have no sound model
I'm looking at a few examples and sure I'm going to sound like a fool
the first time I try to speak them.
axcan (now/today) has the little line over both vowels.
"Aysh-cane" ? or ahsh-cahn
"Nih-cane" or Ni-cahn ?
ompa (over there) mark on the o
om-pah or oom-pah ?
Eye-yale-hua or ee-yal-hua ?
Those examples show up my confusion quite nicely.
