it would be better to use separate diacritics for contour tones so you don't get shit like <èùì> but I don't have a fancy deadkeying keyboard

also r-underdot for the approximant since I somehow missed that there are *four* rhotics

[uvular rhotics are Bad and Wrong but owell]

Onsets: /p t k d g ∅/ + /ɹ w j ɥ n l ∅/
Vowels: /i-y ɯ-u ɤ-o ʌ-ɔ/ with progressive rounding harmony
Codas: /ɹ w j ɥ ɰ z/
Tones: /˦˥ ˦˥˧ ˧˦ ˦˨ ˨/ (high rising, high circumflex, mid rising, falling, and low level approximately)

I'd like to do some sort of contraction system which *may* involve central vowels. Not going to do that yet though.

Yes, I *know* it's Asian. I'm not concerned about that. Feel free to yell at me for doing tones wrong, though.

Here's something rather older—two things, that is, a parent and its descendant. I'm not quite sure what the phonology is; I've just taken a wordlist and made it into sentences.

Apparent phonology: /t k q b d g tʃ dʒ ʃ ʒ s x h v l m n r j/ and /a e i o u aj aw a: i: u:/

/hevu: bubhawvʃawt su:qqen kunugvo ra:mnis qa:x jajtta:k, kaj hej hevu: najdʒra:haw nahilmor majgʃu nebbek dudsa:q ra:mnis hevu: las kavi nud mokvoʃa:lo. nebbek jajtta:k kaj "lun, lun, lun!" ra:mnis "lun" najdʒra:haw tʃajnrawh, hu: ra:mnis "qa:qa:" nebbek qa:x najdʒra:haw nud. dʒi berditu:d kaj tʃalda, tʃi:x, tʃawn hevu: hu: vom hevu: mevxe. kaj xublak ʃajjam tʃalda li:mun nahilmor, kaj boʃa; nu: tʃalda vom kavi kitru:g hu: dʒaimbaʃ./

Apparent phonology: /p b t (d?) k g f v s z ʃ ʒ ʕ ħ ʔ m n ŋ j/; /a ɛ e i o u/ + length plus /ɜ ɨ ɒː ow/, and phonemic stress.

/tʃɨˈjaː pifiˈves ˈaʔaː ˈxuŋbe ʕaːˈniː xɒː jɨˈʔaː, xe jeː tʃɨˈjaː nɨˈʒʕoː njeːˈmiħ ˈmeʒɨ nɜˈʔiː tɨˈzɒː ʕaːˈniː tʃɨˈjaː naː xɜˈvi nus mɛˈfaː. nɜˈʔiː jɨˈʔaː xe "nuː, nuː, nuː!" ʕaːˈniː "nuː" nɨˈʒʕoː tʃiːˈʕo, ow nɨˈʒʕoː "xɒːˈkɒː" nɜˈʔiː xɒː nɨˈʒʕoː nus. ʃi pʕɜʃˈus xe ʃaːs ʃuː, ʃaːm tʃɨˈjaː ow vɛː tʃɨˈjaː ˈmɛve. xe xɨvˈnix ʃɜˈʔaː ʃaːs ˈniːmiː njeːˈmiħ xe feˈʃi; nuː ʃaːs vɛː xɜˈvi kɨsˈʕuːx ow ʃaːmˈbiː. ˈʔaŋgɔː nɜˈʒɛʔɜ xe oʔˈaħ./

And here's my own romanization:

<t k q b d g ch j sh zh s x h v l m n r y> and <a e i o u ai au â î û>.

Hevû bubhauvshaut sûqqen kunugvo râmnis qâx yaittâk, kai hei hevû naijrâhau nahilmor maigshu nebbek dudsâq râmnis hevû las kavi nud mokvoshâlo. Nebbek yaittâk kai "lun, lun, lun!" râmnis "lun" naijrâhau chainrauh, hû râmnis "qâqâ" nebbek qâx naijrâhau nud. Ji berditûd kai chalda, chîx, chaun hevû hû vom hevû mevxe. Kai xublak shaiyam chalda lîmun nahilmor, kai bosha; nû chalda vom kavi kitrûg hû jaimbash.

And:

<p b t k g f v s z sh zh r ḥ ʻ m n ñ y>; <a ẹ e i o u>, +circumflex for length, stress is unmarked, and /ë ï ao ou/.

Chïyâ pifives aʻâ xuñbe rânî xao yïʻâ, xe yê chïyâ nïzhrô nyêmiḥ mezhï nëʻî tïzao rânî chiyâ nâ xëvi nus mẹfâ.

I wouldn't be surprised if spambots had a way to deal with that, too. From quickly looking at the code it seems, though, that there's nothing to keep bots out on the registration page.
