I still fail to distinguish glottalised from plain -- a Korean tried to teach me, but failed. I found it very strange that I could not hear it, since I *know* there's a difference, so why can I not hear it? Anyway -- there is no special diacritic for glottalisation. The use of ejective seems ok. Of course, that would be _>, but ' is X-Sampa for palatalisation and CXS for stress, so it's strange. I've seen '*' for Korean consonants. **Henrik
