Unilang: the Orthography

I quickly advance to this thread just to introduce what I have already
opted for in the matter of orthography. Optimally, the language should be
representable by at least all alphabet-based writing systems, and perhaps
some syllabaries too. For now, I just want to make a convenient system for
presenting the language on this list.

All the phonemes are written as expected, except /S/ is {c}. The unaccented-
syllable sequences /ir/ and /ur/ are spelled {er} and {or}, to reflect a
projected pronunciation. Accent is not indicated if it is on the first
syllable, but marked by a diacritic ´ if it falls somewhere else. Thus, a
sentence in the language might go something like this:

/im'e na sis 'dramir a'kana/

And be written:

"imé na sis dramer akána"

(No specific meaning)
