You think that's bad? the ASCII transcription of Ebisedian is worse.
Unconsciably ugly, as Jesse Bangs says. :-) As an example, take the
following text:

        tww'ma esa'ni erosa'ni t3
                zota' katou' ke.
                zota' cutou' ce.
                zota' rotou' re.
                keve ta'ma ebu' n3 Ta'l3n di gh3'.
        t3m3t3
                my'nac3 katui' ke.
                my'nac3 cutui' ce.
                my'nac3 rotui' re.
                Ta'lin. kil3 icu'ro bis33'di.
        t3m3.

For a comparison, see the "correct" Roman orthography here:
