Looks like an interesting language you've got going! I'm trying to pinpoint what it reminds me of, but that's proving to be very difficult.. I get vibes of Nilo-Saharan as well as Afro-Asiatic, and vaguely Austronesian and/or native North-American. Makes my mind explode a little.. in a good way, of course. XD
Could you maybe tell us a bit about your language? Is it a priori or a posteriori? What does the underlined vowels signify, and the breve on q and w? (That does not show up properly on my computer by the way, but it does on my phone).
Edit: to answer your question, my plan for the afternoon/evening is to finish all the *** I didn't have time to finish at work today. "yay!" :(
Hope you had a nice time with your gran. :D 10 days ago.. :O
Hey XD, hope you finished up the *** by now, well you sent that 16h ago. I don't really know IPA but the breved w makes the same sound as the ou in ouch and the lined letters (mostly e's) are pronounced like a longer version of the ea in easy. It lengthens the vocal and makes it be pronounced in the back position of the mouth. Usually, there's a low-raising tone. Jubhindihoon isn't really a tonal language but it plays a lot on stress. The breved q is a really clicky q sound if that makes sense. İ/ı is like the Turkish one. I take inspiration from Hindi and Arabic but in terms of vocabulary, most of the words are inspired by Hindi. I "arabizise" the words by adding q and w. It's a mix of Afro-Asiatic and Indo-Ayran languages from the time where Muslims ruled parts of India.
I did, thanks! Today I even have time to procrastinate a bit at work. XD
Oh, India! I was totally picturing it in Africa for some reason! :D
The <ou> in ouch is realised as /aʊ/ (at least in British English), and somewhat like /æʊ/ in American (and Australian?) English, possibly with an ɔ instead of the ʊ in some accents?
Pronouncing <ea> in easy in the back of the mouth is not something I've noticed. It's usually just a straight up lengthened /i/ (IE /i:/), but from your description maybe you've got a somewhat laxened (how fitting!) pronounciation of it, so it's approaching /I/ or maybe even /ɨ:/? Or it could be some kind of ATR/RTR distincion, in which case it would fit even more in an African setting XD (it's probably not though).
Clicky q sounds to me like a plain uvular plosive, IE the one used in Arabic. How does the un-breved q-sound differ from a normal k-sound?
Nice work so far! :)

Hello, I'm new here and to languages! I just started on making (my language).
Hello, to be new here me and to languages! To start to make +past article right now me. ❤️
Thanks for the IPA transcriptions! And well... there is no q without breve in Jubhindihoon ;D
Nice looking language! :) Seems very Korean-y, especially with the diphtongs (judging from the romanisation, I don't read katakana(?)). Is it Korean based?
Ah! And you're welcome. :)
I'm guessing the hindi in Jubhindihoon is no coincidence.. what does the Jub- prefix and -hoon suffix signify if I may ask?
It's hiragana actually (idk Japanese so I use google translate). It's a mix of Japanese, Korean (the fundament) <3
Hei ja amta!
Hello and good morning!
(Yep, morning as of the time of writing this)
Apologies for my inactivity, was a bit busy IRL and could only touch NS for a bit for my NSS RPs. Might still be a bit inactive but I have more free time than before. Yay!
