Well, consider your audience. Is this aimed at conlangers, who, if they haven't learned the IPA--or at least bookmarked the URLs of the web sites that explain what all those /f@nki/ characters mean--after a three-month soujourn on the list are summarily taken out back and shot, or for people who wouldn't know a glottal ejective if it came up and spat in their face? :) I vote for the jargon; be simple, but be precise. Say, do you have any sound files of Ebisedian available? Sure would like to hear some of it... :Peter
