           I made this mistake too -- it's not even something I considered
when I started making it. My language has almost all the same sounds in
English, plus a good deal more, but I'm not really sure if I should change
it at this point. There are some sounds I could easily take out (like "b"
and "z"), but I'd have to go through and alter my entire lexicon, which is
fairly large. Point being, you're probably saving yourself a lot of trouble
by considering it now.:)
