I'm pretty positive I've used [I\] for Searixina final -e. If not, here's an
example: _deake_ [firstname.lastname@example.orgI\] "sorrow".
For no particularly good reason, all unstressed non-low final vowels became
[I\] in Searixina. Still, that's a less grim a fate than befell them in
related languages, where they generally dropped out without a trace. The
Klaishic languages have on the whole been harsh on their vowels.
