In Halebuu's writing, the usage of brackets to mark clauses is fairly common. Different types of brackets mark different types of clauses. They are a lot less common in informal spoken language due to their relative complexity, but they do have distinct pronunciations.

( ... ) are used for relative clauses.
They are pronounced 'ʋezh....Ezh'

< ... > are used for clarification of physical circumstances.
They are pronounced 'ʋas....As'

[ ... ] are used for adverbial clauses of purpose.
They are pronounced 'ʋesae....Sae'

{ ... } are used for clauses that don't fall into the previous categories.
They are pronounced 'ʋen....En'

Adpositions and conjunctions can also be used instead of brackets for these functions.

If a clause runs through to the end of a sentence, the closing bracket doesn't have to be used. For example :
Keh Hisgu [ Pah . , "I do it [ for you" : The closing bracket isn't written, because evertything in the sentence after the opening bracket is part of the adverbial clause of purpose/reason.
