There's no separate symbol for any point of articulation in between
alveolar ([s]) and dental ([T]). I guess you can use the diacritic
for "advanced" (plus sign under the symbol, _+ in CXS) or "retracted"
(minus sign under the symbol, _- in CXS). Using those, your phoneme
could be written either [s_+] or [T_-].
If both /s/ and /T/ are also phonemes, then you have a mighty fine
distinction; if not, then I would just pick one of those symbols
for use at the phoneme level and only worry about the _+/_- stuff in
