Uh oh! Now if I present my own version of ASCII-IPA, I'm probably gonna bore
the list to death :(( . Moreover, I called it CFA-IPA, which is near enough to
the name of yours, which could provoke ambiguities (I promise I didn't copy
you, I had the name much before, it means "Conlang Friendly ASCII IPA"
or "Conlang Friendly Agglutinative IPA" :) or even "Christophe's F***ing ASCII
IPA" for those who won't like it :))) ). Moreover, my scheme has some
resemblance to yours, even though I tried to make it more consistent with the
use of diacritics, and it puts diacritics after, not before letters. For this
reason, it sometimes departs more from the IPA than your system, still being
easy to read. I also have the "wildcards", except that in my case there are
plenty of them (most capital letters are unused), and already used characters
can even be redefined if needed (on the condition that the redefinition is
If you want, I'll present my scheme, so that we can compare them, and maybe
enhance our schemes through this comparison.
