g0miileg0's orthography isn't among the most aesthetically appealing I've seen, but beyond the use of "0" as a letter there's nothing much I actively dislike. Pete's system, OTOH, includes stuff like _euohfv_, which makes French look downright stunning by comparison. Andreas PS of my own conlang orthographies, the one I find most aesthetically appealing is Meghean's. How can anyone fail to love the look of _Gheao Chaino Seoimearo sedheum_? PPS That means "I have heard to word of the Lord Creator". The pronunciation is [Zaw xajno Sojmjaro SeDewm]. PPPS That means I did decide that /s/ get's realized as [S] before /j i e/. I'll indicate this on the webpage tonight, or so I hope.
