If /th/ actually occurs it is darn inconvenient to use _th_ for /T/, not to speak of using a hyphen where there is no morpheme boundary! So while staying within Latin-1 you may use: t_? t` T þ D ð s_? s` S ç x x G c X\ h` ?\ j ? ' You'll have to use French quotes, but more power to French quotes! Also if you don't have any geminates you may use _tt ss hh_ for the geminates. Lastly, if [e] and [o] are allophonic you may discard them, using _e_ for the svarabhakti and _o_ for /a:/! /BP 8^) -- B.Philip Jonsson -- melroch at melroch dot se Solitudinem faciunt pacem appellant!
