The syllable structure isn't set in stone yet, but I'm leaning towards CVN, where N=nasal, so that particular ambiguity won't arise. You'd, however, get much the same for medial [Nw] and [N\] - both are _ño_. I'm figuring I'll simply leave it in - ambuigity isn't exactly unknown in natlangs' orthographies, and no reason Nanoling's should be less ambiguous than Meghean's, is there? Andreas
