I'm pretty positive I've used [I\] for Searixina final -e. If not, here's an example: _deake_ [d@a.kI\] "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. Andreas
