Never say I don't procrastinate. New, Improved Thagojian / Lhomrentic[*] numerals. 1 wïno 2 duho 3 treya 4 petrë 5 pémpé 6 Sek.së 7 sémte 8 heStë 9 qennë 10 démSi All pretty much as in the IPA, except: |ï| = /1/ (i-umlaut) |ë| = /@/ (e-umlaut) |é| = /E/ (e-acute) |S| = /S/ (s-acute) |y| = /j/ |k.s| = |k| followed by (s-underdot) = /ks/ The underdot device is used to disambiguate in romanisation between the spellings {kapa}{sima} (with the dot in romanisation) and {ksé} (without). |w| and |y| are written no differently than |u| and |i| in the native script, i.e. {wu} and {yëta}. [*] Which is more euphonious, do you think, /T{"goU.dZ@n/ or /"Kom.r\@n.tIk/ ? I'm considering changing the name, to avoid having to state "New" vs "Old" in my notes. --- Pb
