These are also subject to change.

The aspect suffix, followed by the mood/tense suffix, appears right before the object number suffix and after any aspectual, modal, or other verb suffix.

The aspect suffixes are:
-Prf -e Perfective
-Ipf -a Imperfective
-Ret -oo Retrospective
-Pro -ii Prospective
-Tsl -yy Tenseless

I'm not sure about the long vowels.

The mood/tense suffixes are:
-Imp -l Imperative
-Sub -x Subjunctive
-Opt -p Optative
-PrsInd -m Indicative, Absolute Present
-PstInd -k Indicative, Past
-FutInd -s Indicative, Future
.Ind 0 Indicative, Relative Present

The tense suffixes and the imperative mood suffix aren't used with the tenseless aspect.
The absolute present suffix isn't used with the perfective aspect and the relative present perfective isn't used in main clauses.
I'm not sure if the absolute present suffix is used in main clauses.

Other Affixes

I haven't worked out anything for the aspectuals, modals, evidentials, attitudinals, etc. except that at least some of these will use suffixes.

Orthography

Consonant Letters: p, t, k, c, b, d, g, z, f, s, x, h, m, n, tl, l, j, w.
Vowel Letters: i, e, a, o, y.

c = [ts)]
z = [dz)]
x = [S]
n = [n] or [N] depending on what follows
tl = [tK)]
e = [E]
y = [I\] although this might actually be a strongly retracted [e]

B, d, g, and z contrast with p, t, k, and c after m, n, and l. Only the former occur between vowels* and only the latter occur elsewhere. Also, tl becomes l between vowels.

* except that Vh tends to be pronounced like V:.
