There is an unvoiced "m" in Senjecas.  I use the little circle above 
when it is available.  In X-Sampa I use /m_0/.  In the standard 
orthography of the language I use the IPA symbol "m-hook" when 
available.  Here on the list I use "mh."  I use the "h" digraph here 
to represent the four unvoiced sonorants: mh, rh, lh, jh.

I have read that there is an unvoiced "m" as an allophone in 
English. It occurs after another unvoiced consonant: smoke.
