Here's the Visual Basic algorithm I used to generate them:

Option Explicit

Const C1$ = "pbvftdzsjhgkxcqlrmnwy"
Const C2$ = "pfclmtsqrnkhxbvydzwgj"
Const V1$ = "aiueo"
Const V2$ = "iueoeiuaoa"

Dim A As Integer
Dim B As Integer
Dim C As Integer
Dim D As Integer
Dim E As Integer
Dim X As Integer

Dim S As String

'CVCV forms
E = 2
For A = 1 To Len(C1$)
E = E + 1
If E > Len(V1$) Then E = 1
For X = 1 To 5
B = B + 1
If B > Len(V1$) Then B = 1
C = C + 1
If C > Len(C2$) Then C = 1
D = D + 1
If D > Len(V2$) Then D = 1
If X <> E Then
S = S & vbCrLf & Mid$(C1$, A, 1) & Mid$(V1$, B, 1) & Mid$(C2$, C, 1) & Mid$(V2$, D, 1)
Else
If X > 1 Then 'append this abandoned syllable to the previous word
S = S & Mid$(C2$, C, 1) & Mid$(V2$, D, 1)
End If
S = S & vbCrLf & Mid$(C1$, A, 1) & Mid$(V1$, B, 1)
End If
Next X
Next A

S = S & vbCrLf

S = Replace$(S, "q", "qu")
S = Replace$(S, "c", "cy")
