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.
