I'm not sure how come Hungarian orthography uses <s sz> for /S s/
I could be wrong, but I seem to recall that early on, <s> was used for both /ʃ/ and /ʒ/ while <z> was used for both /s/ and /z/, and it looks like that formed the basis for systems which tried to distinguish all four phonemes (IIRC, there was one that indicated /s/ and /ʒ/ by means of an acute accent or the apostrophe-like diacritic found in Czech). Eventually it settled on <s> indicating a postalveolar and <z> indicating an alveolar, as in the original system, and then the "opposite" character was used to indicate a change in voicing, i.e. <zs> is "the voiced <s>" and <sz> is "the voiceless <z>".
You can tell the same lie a thousand times,
But it never gets any more true,
So close your eyes once more and once more believe
That they all still believe in you.
Just one time.

I haven't decided the language's name yet; there are following choices:
a. *oːn + *ogur "10 tribes"
b. *siaːrɨɡ + *ogur "white/yellow tribe"
c. other suggestions?

The conlang is called Onoor (from Onogur) for the time; I'm not sure what suffix to add to form the name of language, like -la in Chuvash.
A short vowel ê/o/ö are often dropped when it occurs in the final closed syllable when preceded by a suffix; partly due to initial stress and partly Saxon influence, such a vowel is pronounced as a schwa in unstressed syllables:

There are other case-like markers like -sêr/-sor/-sör 'without' and -scên/-scon/-scön/-zyên/-zyon/-zyön 'for; because of'; the former behaves like a conventional case, but the latter behaves like comitative.
