Caucasian phonologies and orthographies

From:Danny Wier <dawiertx@...>

An Adobe document on how the many consonants and few vowels of North
Caucasian languages are represented in Cyrillic writing.

This does not show Latin script when used for Chechen, and minor languages
like Bats (a NC Caucasian language written in Georgian script) are not
shown; neither is the infamous Ubykh. And notice that TETRAGRAPH used for a
certain phoneme in Kabardian!

Comments? Any ideas that might relate to conlangs, especially those with
large phonologies?
