How to Speak Kloom! (Kind of WIP, it's 99.9% done)

Also: Linkhttps://lingojam.com/EnglishtoKloomtranslator
This is not meant to offend nor make fun of anybody or their language.
For reference, Kloom is the official language of Nooooooooooooooo. English is just the national language.

So, you want to learn the Kloom language? Alright then. Try to keep up, it's not too easy.

Pronunciation and Grammar
J makes a y sound. For example:
Bojs (Bass) is pronounced roughly like boss. The only difference between the pronunciations is that bojs has a long o.
Bejd (Bed) is pronounced like bade.
There are some accented letters such as é and á (and rarely â, but I'm not gonna go into that too much.
Bejd is sometimes (depending on context) spelled Béjd. If you are using it as a noun, it is spelled bejd.
Je kon bards bejd, or I am going to bed is one example. If you are using bejd as an adjective, it goes like this:
Ji, je hiem starm as béjd. Which means Yes, I will be bedded.
There is no Q, W, X, Y, or Z (or at least not in the Noon dialect), But there are additional letters like: á, é, í, ó, and ú.

Oddballs
If the third 'a' in a word is not the ending letter, then it is pronounced like the 'ea' in eat.
For example the word Skratmalatis would be pronounced Skratmaleetis.
If a j is the ending letter, than is is pronounced like a regular j, as in 'jam'
Fromaj (cheese) is pronounced like the French word, Fromage, also meaning cheese.
Gh makes a regular 'j' sound also.
If there is and e after a j at the end of a word, then it is silent.

Derivation
Like English, many words of the Kloom language are derived from other languages.
e.g. French, German, English, Spanish, etc.
Sometimes, a word can be a phonetic duplicate, or have the same sound, of the same word in another language, like fromaj.
For example, the word for one, is unoe (like 'uno' in Spanish)
The word for English is Inglais.(Spanish, 'Inglés')
Sometimes a word is a duplicate.
Like the word dog (I don't think I have to show you what that means), or France.
