An easy way to make an orthography more exciting is to think up alternatives
for the most common digraphs. Eg. a sketch I lately put together uses <sf
zv> for /T D/ and <nw> for /N/, rather than the generic overused <th dh ng>.
/G/ could use a new representation too, I guess, but I don't have any (good)
ideas for that...
