transcription questions

From:lblissett <blissett@...>

    I have two sounds I'm having trouble transcribing:

    "hk". This is a sound made by exhaling and quickly stopping the flow of
air by pressing the rear of the tongue to the roof of the mouth. It isn't
voiced and it isn't a clicking sound, and I'm not sure how to transcribe it.

    "tth". This is a lot like [T], but has a kind of hissing / daffy-duck
quality to it.

     Any ideas?
