The indication of the vowels as given here is only approximate as there are two to four varying pronunciations for each.

Letters not listed below are pronounced approximately as in English.

A, a  - a as in day
E, e  - e as in let
I, i  - i as in pin
O, o  - o as in note
U, u  - u as in duke
 
Č, č  - c as in cello
Š, š  - s as in sugar
