Waagh! Yep, that should read "LOW central vowel". o_ô;; It's a bit easier than [a_"], but maybe even [6] could suffice in many a situation... [Chris Bates:]

...and it an be found at . The only actual disagreement with CXS I know of is that our [& &\] are their [{ &] (as per original X-SAMPA) - but there's also tons of all-new symbols. Oh, and it seems that I remembered a bit wrong; [e\] is already reserved for an epiglottal approximant, so the front unrounded middle vowel is represented as [E\]. Hmh. *I'm* still gonna use [e\] as a vowel. John Vertical
