Another stab at the vocalic nightmare

OK, after some more tips and advice, I have for the group's
consideration another try at the vowels of my conlang:
Letter SAMPA Southern Californian English Example
i /i/ seen
e /E/ sent
a /A/ sought
u /u/ suit
ä /@/ sun
ei /eI/ sane
ou /OU/ soak
ai /AI/ sight
oi /OI/ soil
au /aU/ sound
Unless anyone thinks there is a glaring problem with the above scheme I
think I'm ready to call this the "final draft" and move on to the next step
of how words are put together.
So far I have come up with a simple stress rule of:
First syllable on two-syllable words.
Second syllable on words of three or more syllables.
Word structure is (V)CV(C). Hopefully I'm representing that correctly.
Here are a few words I've come up with, but I haven't come up with a meaning
for them yet. Perhaps you could tell me what they suggest to you?
As always, thanks for taking the time to read my posts. I appreciate all
