Makes perfect sense. One of the first things I did was start transcribing
the corpus in a way almost identical to what you have done; I just couldn't
bear to start looking at the language itself with those horrid things from
the script. I got a bored about 3/4 of the way through, and put it aside,
I had the passing thought that the shwas might actually be PIE laryngeals.
Anyone tried to match up Atlantean words with PIE roots yet?
