Sorry about the double posting. How that happened I don't know.
Anyway, some quick comments on Callistic: notice that the Roman
alphabet lacks the letter <w>, it doesn't need it. But one other
phoneme I didn't mention: <f> appears mostly in loanwords, and it
carries the value (surprise!) /f/.
Also, still used by some are three Greek letters that represent the
aspirated stops <ph> <th> <kh>: they are _phi_, _theta_, and _chi_
(which looks like Greek _psi_ because it comes from West Greek). But
in modern usage these are rarely found.
