The stressed syllabic consonants are pretty cool.

Since you don't have an /o/ phoneme, you might as well represent /@/ with "o". That would relieve you from all those ugly ës. "Onlosh" is also less obviously an English clone than Ënlësh is. =P Or maybe, if you worry about "o"=/@/, use "u"=/@/ (which should be rather intuitive for an English speakers) and "o"=/u/.
