S'Kra Mur naming conventions
There is no official source describing S'Kra Mur naming conventions. The following observations are based on names from books and NPCs.
There is very little official information about the pronunciation of S'Kra words. Moreover, each GM often has his own way of transcribing pronunciation, and that method may not be internally consistent.
The primary sources on pronunciation are two books: The Language of the S'Kra Mur and The Ways of the S'kra Mur.
In compound words, stress is placed on the second syllable. For example, q'alri is pronounced as "kuh'AHL-ree." An exception to this rule is when the pishra (denoted by the apostrophe) appears near the end of the word. In those words, the stress shifts to the final syllable.
This convention may be limited to compound words. It does not always apply to other polysyllabic words. For example, in the name Hhshal (pronounced "ESH-ahl"), the stress falls on the first syllable.
The pishra ("little stop") is a short intake of air that is denoted by an apostrophe. It is often used to form compound words and to separate long sequences (as in the formal naming tradition). It may be used to separate syllables (when part of a word might otherwise appear to be monosyllabic).
The letter X does not exist in the S'Kra Mur language, and is not used in traditional S'Kra Mur names, though it has crept in from other languages and dialects, such as the Adan'f adaptation of the S'Kra tongue (e.g., Xerasyth).
A is most likely the broad A of "father." It's possible that the A becomes obscure (as in "final") when it is unstressed, as in the name Hhshal (ESH-ahl).
HH is a vowel. When stressed, it is often pronounced like a short E (as in "let"). When unstressed, it is an obscure E (as in "item" and "novel").
The vowel I is sometimes an obscure vowel (as in "edible") and sometimes a long EE sound (as in "see").
The diphthong TH -- at least when it appears as a final syllable -- appears to be a subtle W sound. (In The Ways of the S'kra Mur, the author said that the approximate pronunciation of Mhhrikath is "MURR-ah-kaw.")
