The latest revision of the LANCA alphabet

I've expanded the alphabet and phonology of the more "formal" form of
Trollish. It's more like Sumerian and Etruscan now.
E [E] or [e]
H [h] or [x]
I [i] as vowel, [j] as consonant
O [O] or [o]
S [s] or [S]
V [u] as vowel, [w] as consonant
X [ts] or [tS]
Z [dz] or [dZ]
The alphabet, as you see, is Latin, and lowercase is unused.
But... some Trolls interpret voiceless and voiceless stops (and the sibilant
affricate) as aspirated and plain, making B = [p] and P = [p_h]. And still
others have only one kind of stop, just [p] in the labial class. Those
either ambiguously write both B and P, or only P.
Also, I REALLY want a syllabry for this! My ideas come from Canadian and
Japanese, so far.
