That's odd, it worked for me when I tried your file. I don't have the 
CJK package, though, and I had commented out the lmodern, textcomp, 
inputenc, and maybe one or two others that seemed likely to conflict.

I got *some* of the other text when I tried, but not all--I think the 
tipa stuff wasn't showing up, or something like that. I have no idea 
how those fonts are set up.
