Edit: Somehow I missed the first part of the post? Am I going crazy? haha
1a:
Velars: A
Nasals: B
Sibilants: B
h: A
ł: C

1c: A
1e: A

Its extremely tempting, to, if we go with palatals, to fill out all the spots with the same type (ʲ) of secondary articulation.

The Internet at my house is broken [:'(] , and I have a forensics tournament tomorrow, so the next round of voting will be put off until further notice.

f,θ,s,ʃ,ɕ>ʋ,ð,z,ʒ,ʑ/V_V
h>Ø/V_V
v,w>ʋ
ɾ>r(tap to trill for those who have trouble reading it)

*this may need to be worked on more do to there essentially being a phonemic difference between ʃ and ʃ (and ʒ and ʒ) now.

A) merge them to r:
B) drop the ɹ̩
C) drop the r
D) insert a ǝ
E) something else
F) leave it
4: Rhotics Pt2
Should we palatalize r and ɹ?
A) yes
B) no
C) r but not ɹ
D) ɹ but not r
5: h between vowels
Should h>Ø/V_V occur before or after palatalization?
A) before: dahi>dai
B) after: dahi>daçi
6: clusters
Should clusters of non palatalized/palatalized consonants be allowed?
A) no antʰʲi>aɲtʰʲi
B) not in the same syllable stʰʲił>sʲtʰʲił
C) yes
7: ʎ and j
Should ʎ and j merge in front of a front vowel(or depending on 6 a palatalized consonant)?
A) yes jɛs>ʎɛs
B) no
Finally 8: should j palatalize the preceding consonant?

B) no
