I am thinking of creating a language that has a sound system a little similar to Latin, with a guttural feel like German. The people who are going to speak this language are harsh and sound annoyed at all times. At the same time, they are very much attached to their roots; they perform little to no interaction with other races. So there is little influence of foreign languages on theirs.
I thought the sound /q/ would be great here, but the consonant clusters are too hard for me to pronounce. Hence, I am finding it difficult to form words. I am wondering if there is any kind of rule in syllable structure that helps or obstructs this kind of sound system building.
