Second report on Koni'

Thanks to everyone who gave suggestions on Koni'. Especially
to Teoh. Jessica sends her best regards to you all.
Koní is spelt with a "k" these days, due to some changes in the
orthography. |k| is [k] and |c| has changed to [tS].
I've created a pdf-file so you can view the results so far.
The link is at http://home.swipnet.se/escape/koniphon.pdf
Native Koni' spelling avoids digraphs entirely. However, this
doesn't work at all in e-mail, so there is an ASCII-transcription
scheme as well.
And the ' in Koni' seems a bit redundant, since I'm sure
most people know by now that it's the "i" that is stressed.
Otherwise, ' marks irregular stress.
For you who won't check out the pdf-file, I can inform you
that [}] is written with Greek small omega (just like Ebisedian,
btw. :) Prepalatalization is marked by dieresis, and irregular
stress plus prepalatalization is marked with double acutes.
If anyone wants to comment on the very odd aspirated labiodental
voiceless fricative [f_h], you're more than welcome. :)
