That's a very intuitive system! I sometimes use a much less intuitive transcription system that has certain similarities to Welsh spelling. It may be written without any diacritics: /i, j/: i /e/: é or ee /E/: e /E~/: e~ or en/em* /y, H/: y /2/: ú or uu /9/: u /9~/: u~ or un/um* /u, w/: w /o/: ó or oo /O/: o /O~/: o~ or on/om* /a/: a /A/: á or aa /A~/: a~ or an/am* Notes: If the nasalized vowels are written with following n/m, then final /n/ needs to be written with _nn_, e.g. _bon_ ('bon') vs. _bonn_ ('bonne'). The weak schwa vowel is not transcribed because its occurence is predictable. If required (in poetry), it may be transcribed as if it were /9/. kry@s: j. 'mach' wust
