man
This is the spelling when the project started
maen
This is one way to prevent problems elsewhere. When you deviate from the IPA you make problems for yourself. There may be a way to salvage a for /ae/ rather than a for /V/ but it will take more effort than what has been expended so far.
män
This is the spelling according to the Simpel-Fonetik system devised by Allan Kiisk
'a' will always be pronounced as in man, bag, cat...etc. It will never have the sound of 'ey' as in 'make' or 'cake'
