Welcome to the list! I've been here since 1997 and I'm still lost.

I assume the consonants are pronounced (in X-SAMPA): /b p d t g k s z tS dZ
S Z/, or is b voiceless plain and p voiceless aspirated, as in Pinyin? And
the vowels... what would <e> be, /e:/?

You have such short words for entire sentences; are all the words like that?
Seems like you'd need either longer words or many more consonants and
vowels.
