- In my handwritten phonetic glosses in my Irish textbook, i mark 'slender' consonants with acute accents, except for S, D, and T, which i put haceks on, and |dh|/|gh| which i write |y| (and whose broad equivalent i write with the Arabic letter |`ayn|). -Stephen (Steg) "Tá gráin agam ar mo ríomhaire."
