Ah. Umm... I think I may have phrased the question a little wrong.
Although Iéraith is the 'Welsh-style' language, it's Elé I want the digraph for. I
wanted a really good-looking one, and in my opinion Welsh has one of the most
beautiful orthographies around.
Thanks for the help.
Andalath-oi i-phailén! [Iéraith]
Ghe'o mpodag pa' che'! [Khâche']
Yeses kéthes! [Elé]
(In case you were wondering, the Elé phrase 'Yeses kéthes' means 'May
you be with joy', and is the usual informal farewell. A more formal
'Lasinùré kéthêià ssaiá'-
'May blessings fall upon you like soft autumn rain',
and the most formal is
'Tiàté sséthàs hessànàith iadd kelàdes'-
'May the waterfalls ever cast their rainbows on you'.)
(If you want to know about the other two, I'll be happy to tell you :-) )
