For the record, the Z-SAMPA has [y\ D_a\] for these (the latter is just an "alveolar" diacritic). [q\ D\] are voiceless uvular lateral fricativ &amp; voiced palatal sibilant. I'd say your proposition on the latter makes more sense, but I'm not convinced about the former either way. ( ) OI for IPA sounds agreeable. I don't feel like checking what canIPA uses, but most likely something like "turned small delta with angled upper right corner" and "reverse smallcaps R with curly serifs". ( ) John Vertical
