But his list was discussing the way in which he was *transcribing* the sounds of his language. He said nothing about which sounds he actually *had*. All he said was that the orthographic representation <p> is not used in his schema, but that does not mean there is no sound /p/ (using the IPA schema). The easiest way to resolve this is, of course, just to ask him. So, Austin, do you have words which have roughly the same sound as that of <p> in English "pie"?
