    Nice, but just a tip; People tend to get annoyed by names like gnrvo and psdhch, but if it's a vital part of an alphabet you made up yourself then I guess you don't have to worry that much

    Other than that, It's a great map!

    Hmmm, I'm not quite sure I see where you're seeing any names like that. You're implying that my labels include huge consonant clusters, but in general the Eindo language is actually a bit more vocalic than English is. Keep in mind a few things: the [j] in this language is pronounced like the consonantal [y] in English, [y] in Eindo is pronounced as a vowel as German [ü], and the combination [ng] at the beginning of Ngutevro is technically only one sound, the same sound that is at the end of the English word "sing." [zh] is to [z] as [sh] is to [s], and similarly [dh] is to [d] as [th] is to [t]. These are all more clear on the map which is labeled using the Eindo language, rather than English, because they are all represented by a single letter, rather than a digraph. Other than that, there really aren't any labels that I see which appear to have consonant clusters like that. Could you specify an example?
