The whole *ASCII apostrophe* thing for Qazaqi (Kazakh) could be avoided by
using a Turkish-based orthography; this way, /h/ can still be distinguished
from /x/, /u/ from /w/, ... !

·<Ä Ö Ü> for front rounded vowels /æ ø y/
·<Ş J> for laminal fricatives /ʃ ʒ/, and <Ç C> for laminal affricates  /tʃ
·<X> for /x ~ ꭓ/, and <Ğ> for its voiced counterpart /ɣ ~ ʁ/
·The Turkish dull-I letter <İ ı> for the phoneme /ɨ ~ ɯ ~ ɤ/
·<Ṅ> for the *eng* sound /ŋ/
... .

So, a Turkish-based ASDF keyboard layout would do fine for typing in Qazaqi
using our Latin/Roman alphabet.
