orthographical question.

I have a little difficulty here with the Dalmatian orthography. How to
represent /S/ and /tS/ where the [i] following is not syllabic?

As I have it now, /Sta:lu/ is written [scitalu]. Also in suffices it will
happen that there's an -i- there which isn't pronounced hardly, let alone

I was thinking to use an apostroph where the [i] is unsyllabic
(for the above example it would come out as [sc'talu]...would
this work? How would Italian deal with this (seeing as Italian orthography
is what the new Dalmatian orthography of 1933 was based on, replacing the
earlier one based on German).
