Modern Chatcaavan is written in a form of alphabetic script. Vowels have "short" and "long" versions; long vowels are used to indicate stress in the word. Thus the transliteration "Chatcaava"; all three vowels are pronounced the same way, but the doubled vowel in the middle is an indication of stress.
