Re: Help! Phonology From Hell!

I HATE most labial and bilabial sounds.  Eviendadhail has only a 'v'
(voiced labiodental fricative?) sound and an 'm' sound (voiced bilabial
nasal fricative?)(So I don't know SAMPA....I'll get around to learning
it eventually...)  And those were put in with great reluctance.

BTW, I love your phoneme harmonization scheme ;-).  I'm jealous that I
didn't think of it.
