NAD Phonotactic Calculator

This tool automatically calculates NAD for two- and three-consonant clusters in word initial, medial and final position.

To calculate NAD, simply use the keyboard below to input consonant clusters in the box, writing one cluster per line. Use the symbol V to indicate the positions of vowels relative to the cluster, e.g.
klV – word initial cluster /kl/ followed by a vowel
Vst – word final cluster /st/ preceded by a vowel
VndV – medial cluster /nd/ surrounded by vowels
