Your spelling reform is quite interesting. However, it's obviously not
intended for my dialect. You would seem not to have /r=/, making it into
a schwa.

There, you have "raezi" for razor. According to previous posts, you have |i| for schwa. Do you pronounce the word something like [rejz@]? For me, it definitely ends in [zr=]. The frequency of diacritics is an obstacle to this system's use, I think. But so would a tremendous amount of digraphs. English ends up like Maggel, with the written words having little to do with pronunciation as a practical matter. (I couldn't do anything like that, I'm afraid.) People manage, though. Some do.
