Syllables are formed through starting with a (sometimes clusters at initial positon) consonant, a vowel (or dipththong) and an optional consonant (or cluster). Consont clusters aren't allowed in a medial position. Consonant clusters for both initial and final position are restricted to a few possibilities. Only a few dipthongs are allowed as well. Both diphthongs and consonant clusters are usually written using certain diacritics, but rarely special ligatures have been devised by scribes, most haven't caught on.
