quite right im not sure why i had that, im usually good about following my own rules [i y u] and [I Y U] only contrasting in *unstressed* syllables is also a bit surprizing, but IMO it adds some nice flavor (and might signal the beginnings of a stress system change?) yeah thats a new feature but it reflects the way i talk (kinda)
