Notes

Ewondo is a tonal language with five tones, though they are often omitted from writing. The high tone is marked with an acute accent (á), and the low tone is only marked in nasal syllables with a grave accent (à). The tones can be combined: high-low, marked by a circumflex (â), and low-high, marked by a caron (ǎ). There is also a middle tone that is unmarked.
