That is really generous of you. Thanks!!! But I use some pretty
none-ordinary letters in my description of Boreanesian and I suppose
some pretty none-web-friendly fonts. The IPA transcription uses the
SILDoulos font and the romanization is rendered in a unicode font
called Thryomanes. Even if I edit the whole thing so that it is written
in unicode, there's no guarantee that everyone will be able to see
the special letters I use. I'll have to see if I can change the
romanization of Boreanesian in some way so that it uses more ordinary
letters. Meanwhile, I'm finalizing The Boreanesian Reference Grammar
and Phonology. If you're interested in recieving a copy in the near
future, let me know.

What do you think of it? Of course,
