Without more information, it's really hard to judge. What is the sound of the letter "u" as distinct from "y"? You say that "y" is the "oo" of English "boot", but that is [u] in IPA. Are "u" and "y" meant to be as in Finnish? Also, are doubled vowels long, as in Finnish? -- There is / one art || John Cowan <jcowan@...> no more / no less || to do / all things || with art- / lessness \\ -- Piet Hein
