Clicky McClick's Clickguage is the easiest language you'll ever learn. It does not have a hippo-sized alphabet of hideously difficult letters and sounds. Like the Hawaiian language, it is simple and fun--the funnest, in fact. Here are the letters, both vowels and consonants, of the Clickguage, with pronunciation guidelines. Study this page long and hard before moving on to other pages, for this is the foundation of laughter and life that we will build upon hitherto.

A Note on Consonants

The consonants in Clickguage are represented by a series of letters, except in the case of "w." It is important to remember that all of the consonants, though they are made up of multiple letters, they represent only one sound. For example, the Clickguage letter "gft" is made up of four English letters, but it represents one letter in Clickguage and, therefore, one distinct sound. In the case of "gft" it is a popping sound. If you don't like this, do me a favor and take a long walk off a short pier, because I am busy creating a language of liberty and laughter and don't have time to verbally spar with morons and unlovably dumb people. Thanks.
