Okaikiar changes

Well, I've made some changes to Okaikiar.

1. It's sprouted two new vowels: y = /y/ and ø = /2/ = [2]/[9],
   represented in the native writing system by shapes that
   look like those of u and o plus a small horizontal mark
   indicating the umlaut.

2. The singular/plural vowel change has become regular umlaut.

3. The regular verb conjugation now combines person, number, and mood
   in a single set of suffixes instead of being completely

4. There's a new subjunctive mood.

5. There's an explicit progressive aspect, instead of just
   "unspecified" and "complete".

6. The verbs "to be", "to go", and a few other common verbs are
   now irregular, although I haven't described them on the web
   site yet.

Anyway, details are at
