session
Pitmamn's New Era: cessation secession secessionist session The first two outlines are identical and you cannot insert a second place vowel sign anywhere to provide a distinction.

(2) If already written, a quicker way to distinguish would be to insert a heavy or light dot before the circle+hook, respectively. This would not look like an initial "i" vowel because the outline would be sitting on the line, not through it.
