Nice choice! The sound changes involved definitely made this a challenge. [:D] If possible, can I ask to see an IPA transcription of bɔ̂ bɔ̄̂?

I'll try to have something for the next round soon.

It was really fun. Initial voiced stops became implosives. These became phonemic due to initial vowel deletion.

It's /bɔ̂ bɔ̂ː/. The initial vowels were dropped, leading to a falling tone.
