Ah, I see now. It's too late, I've done gone and been inspired. In the language I just started, the closest you could get is <vìczìswazlac>, read /fi.tSis.vVz.'la:ts/, where /V/ represents an "inverted v". Also, <ì> is used to represent /i/ in an unstressed syllable, and is shorter than <i> in a stressed syllable, which represents /i:/. <i> in an unstressed syllable is <I>. -- Robert
