That's because /BlitayI/ is meant to write Shaquelingua, not English nor any earthling language.

All the shaquean consonants are here, why should I need more? The rules to transcribe names aren't definitive (nor written) yet but I think the way a Shaquean would mispronounce your first name would be: KarhçāY [k_hax.C3H] KaraçtāY [k_haXa.Ct3H] (If you insist on keeping all your consonants.) (I estimated your pronunciation of "Carsten" not too far from [kax.St@n] since you used to have a german email.)

Of course, I'd like to see all the shaquean scripts on Omniglot but I first need to fix the grammar so that the sentences in the example aren't too incorrect... and to have something pretty to link from Omniglot. ja tusi tō klava, [ja: tusi tO k4ava] (There will be another day.) -- ================== Remi Villatel ==================
