You know I'm a fan of Meghean... IMHO, the spelling and definitely the pronunciation are original enough not to count as a Celticlone. The use of vowel letters for glides is a big plus. So is the inclusion of /Z/. =D While you do employ lenition, I think it's far enough from the Welsh or Gaelic systems to "count". The word- internal inflections are also something I always like. -- Christian Thalmann
