(John's IAL) as a temporary name.

    I came up with an auxilliary language a couple days ago too, and it's
just about done (that's three days, Mr. Bell).  I don't have time to put up
its details now (class at 2:00), but I will later.

<<voiceless/aspirated/fortis stops:  p t k.
voiced/unaspirated lenis stops/voiced fricatives:  b d g.
voiceless fricatives:  f s c x.
nasals: m n.
lateral: l.>>

    I'm confused with the second line...  You have "voiced fricatives"
written at the end.  Was that an accident?  Anyway, I love your vowel
disharmony thing.  :)  I may have to steal it one day... ~:D
