Yeah, the distribution of the vowels that I got on several tries came out with a skew for a five vowel system, but four of those are high vowels (/i/, /I/, /u/, /U/)! So, maybe it just needs some tweaking. ========================================================================= Thomas Wier Dept. of Linguistics "Nihil magis praestandum est quam ne pecorum ritu University of Chicago sequamur antecedentium gregem, pergentes non qua 1010 E. 59th Street eundum est, sed qua itur." -- Seneca Chicago, IL 60637
