lol Actually, a dope sheet is exactly what I had in mind for ideally working on. I just wasn't sure your level of (classic?) animation training, and didn't wanna start throwing terms at you like 'dope sheet', in case you thought I was calling you a dope or the like.
Anyway, yes, if you have that, that's the perfect place to slot in the mouth sounds as they hit each frame in the timeline. I like to embellish on how I write each mouth sound, so I know what to play up with the mouth when I animate it (eg, if it's a really stressed "Oooo" sound, I might write a bigger 'O' and then write them smaller as they trail off). Whatever works out best for your own mind, though!
