Since you speak at length of the writing system, you might list the vowels and consonants and any exceptions to the syllabary (such as, for instance, a lone |s| as one of them).
The consonants he used: 0 (that is, no consonant), g, h, l, m, n, kw, s, d, tl, ts, w, y.
The vowels he used: a, e, i, o, u, V (that is, the sound in "nut").
The exceptions: dla, hna, nah, s, ta, ti, te.
