Yes. ("Ise" though should preserve its original vowel sound for e) I left it ambiguous whether this is merely a spelling change or a phonetic shift as well (from /S/ to /Is/); I think my original intent was just the former, but I'm okay with either interpretation. Feel free to decide that detail yourself.
