>>Well, Moten is written with the Roman alphabet with the addition of fourletters all beginning with a vertical bar (like a "t" without the

and /d_z/), |n and |l (representing the palatals - or palatalised, since
this language doesn't make a difference between them - /n_j/ and /l_j/).<<

Ooh, I like that analogy. :)
>>Well, it's only four, so it's not that much. American people with firstname, middle name and last name are only one less than that :)) . Ans
since the samsigoj is never actually used to call someone, names in Moten
are in fact just made of three meaningful parts.
Hehehe... yeah, I guess it isn't that much.
