Dans un courrier dat=E9 du 15/05/99 23:52:26  , vous avez =E9crit :

<< stressed /@/ became /i/ (from the allophone [i-]), while unstressed /@/
 became /o/,  >>

Reminds me of the Japanese issue about i/o and e/a roots :
ki =3D tree
ko-giri =3D (the) saw

fune =3D ship
funa-zoko =3D bottom of ship

Some say there must have been a, i, e, o, u, =F6, =E4, some other think only =
i, u. So why not (un)stressed @ ? :-)=20
