I am new here, but I am experienced in linguistics. I started at laadanlanguage.org, and I am a bit concerned with the extremely varied transcriptions and lack of non-English phonemes. Since this language "belongs to any and all who want to use it," I decided to offer a proposal. It is a work in progress, but you should be able to view and comment on it through this link if anyone is interested:

Ilawa-Kataka, you've done some lovely work formalizing what was heretofore more art than science. I applaud your efforts.

The one thing I notice that you may want to look again at is the transliteration into /p/. Láadan (LAadan if you're not using Windows) has no voiceless stops. I'd recommend transliterating those sounds you've sent to /p/ into /b/.

Wil sha,

Thank you! I thought that something seemed off, but I somehow could not figure it out. I have changed /p/ to /b/. I will continue my work today (hopefully) adding more examples and perhaps adding some vowel rules. Please suggest any other changes or additions you would like to see.

Wil sha,

I have finished the rules for simple consonant conversion.
