New World Languages

For these languages, words were absorbed into English by European settlers who transcribed what they heard when they came into contact with indigenous New World peoples, so naturally the words (which were once mere transcriptions) are mostly spelled exactly as they sound.

This set of languages tends to follow the basic /ä/ = a, /ā/ = e, /ē/ = i, /ō/ = o, /ü/=vowel scheme.
