Slight changes in Montreiano orthography

Since I have not been happy with any of the ways I had thought up to write
/Z/ before a, o, or u in Montreiano, I decided that j will be used for
that purpose. Originally it was to be used for /h/, but i decided that h
will be  used, even though speakers would not pronounce it at all when
seeing it written (of course, they can say /h/, but since the sound
disappeared, h became a silent letter). My original way to write /Z/ was
gg, but finally, i didnt like the look of it.

So, subjuntiuo, for instance is pronounced as /subZuntiwo/.
