Con-Orthography - PIE

From:Joe <joe@...>

I decided that the current PIE linguistic orthography leaves much to be
desired aesthetically, and I slammed together a new one.

/k_w/ - <cw>
/g_w/ - <gw>
H1 - <h>
H2 - <ch>
H3 - <chw> *Laryngeals based on most common reconstruction.
/g_h/ - <gh>
/b_h/ - <bh>
/d_h/ - <dh>
/g_h_w/ - <ghw>
/w/ - <v>
/k/ - <k>
/j/ - <j>

Now, the word,father, translates as:

pchter - pH2ter

and 'dog' translates as:
cvon - kwon

so, my father had a dog is:

Misjo pchter kapti cvon.

Looks quite pleasent, no?
