I do believe that you are describing an _apical_ s (vs. the _laminal_ one found in English) in IPA one uses a subscript box with no top (an upsidedown version of the dental subscript) and laminal uses a closed box. In X-SAMPA _a for apical and _m for laminal. -Wayne Chevrier- _________________________________________________________________ Get your FREE download of MSN Explorer at
