OT: Azurian.

I have started working on Azurian, which is spoken in the middle,
southeast and northwestern regions of Uriania today. It was brought
to the country by invading Vikings and will have some features from
Faroese, some from western Norwegian and some unique features caused
by a Middle Urianian substrate, like devoicing of consonants
following unvoiced consonants, simplifying initial clusters, traces
of postpositional grammar etc. I have made some initial notes on
phonology, but will lay this aside now for further consideration and
adjustment to morphology and sentence structure when those become
more clear. But one thing I am considering is to unvoice an m before
unvoiced stops and s. Curiously I don't find a symbol for this in the
Sampa chart. Is this something that's simply not done, or what?
