In the Modern Standard Thirranic Alphabet, there are 26 letters in total, plus two digraphs, Ch and Th, representing the voiceless velar fricative and both dental fricatives, respectively. Thirranic omits the letters J, Q, and X. The letter C is used to denote the Ch (/ʃ/) sound. The letter Å occurs rarely, but enough that it warrants its own letter in the alphabet. The letter Y is used almost exclusively to represent the "and conjunction" and as such also warrants its own letter. The letter G only represents the sound /g/ and does not have the /dʒ/ sound and is never silent (ie. design). It has two diacritics, the ring and the caron.
