Yes, I'm sorry, I don’t know X-SAMPA at all, so it is difficult for me to explain sounds. It is a voiceless palatal stop.

Wow, you got it perfectly right! My goal was to have the smallest amount of sounds, and no real odd sounds.

Aww crap. I really liked the o with a slash too. I could use a different symbol in the external alphabet, and still use the o with slash in the internal right?
