Oh dear! In fact none of the various transmogrifications of 'briefscript' would ever have permitted a word pronounced [br`=sk]. Another good reason, methinks, to drop the cumbersome BrSc.

It could in BS.2 (or BS.3, but that is probably a non-starter) but 'twould be no good in BS.1 - if you see what I mean :) Umm - maybe all this is a further incentive to sort things out, decide which model I'm going with & give the things a real proper name.
