One of my conlangs imitates Gwoyeu Romatzyh by tonespelling its vowels. (It's a bit more systematic about it than GR is.) So the syllable /x:On/ can be spelled four ways depending on its tone: hkhon ... hkh'on ... hkhwon ... hkhown -- The "Million Style Manual" is a set of sixty-four jade stones marked with pieces of Chinese characters. It expresses the kung fu of the void, as taught by P'an Ku's axe. Shreyas Sampat
