I stole the English word for mayor because I haven't worked through government systems for the conculture who uses this language. (At the point when this form of the language is spoken, though, they probably would still have kings for cities.)

If it's pronounced anything like it is in X-SAMPA, then yes, I can pronounce it.

Oh, the f is dropped. OK.

"jfm" seemed a bit tricky.

Dang. You must like using consonants as syllable nuclei. (It also really helps with the word, I can almost pronounce it thanks to the X-SAMPA.)

I've really enjoyed the responses so far!
(Sorry my post isn't more substantial, but I didn't think I should let it pass without comment how much I've appreciated others' contributions.)

I'm not sure if I mean tentative, exactly, but that's what I've been using for the suggestion of "would" for the past six years. (^_^) If someone knows the right term, please tell me!

Oh, and this is ra cel, soon to be posted.
