I found Diauni.ttf at
http://www.thesauruslex.com/typo/dialekt.htm (swedish)
http://www.thesauruslex.com/typo/engdial.htm (english)

It has landmlsalfabetet at E100-E197 (lower case only)
and s-j at E19F, S-J at E1A5, with Y-ogonek, -ogonek,
G-slash, R-slash, -slash nearby.

[BTW Is the fact that o-slash is not decomposed not entirely
analogous to the fact that i is not decomposed? I would say
that neither gives an indication of how symbols involving
a combining dot or combining slash are handled in general.]
