Jonathan: "But how many languages have you worked on that use Cyrillic?"

Fran: "Most of them."

03:36:29 [me]: cardinal vowels are so wrong

03:36:44 [Tristan]: oh, yeah, they're quite arbitrary

03:37:58 [me]: very franco-centric, though, if you ask me

03:39:24 [me]: btw, Kazakh has aspirated voiceless stops

03:39:27 [me]: go figure

03:39:40 [me]: but those voiceless stops voice and fricativise on occasion :)

03:40:11 [Tristan]: the primaracy of voice distinction in stops is also very fraco-centric :)

03:40:28 [Tristan]: maybe the americans should make their own freedom phonetic alphabet :)
