The alveolar click as pity has two commonly used written representations, "tsk" and "tut". Both of these also have "spelling pronunciations", [tIsk] and [tVt]. I don't know whether "Tcha(h)!", which appears to be negation/rejection, is a click or not. -- John Cowan One art/there is/no less/no more/All things/to do/with sparks/galore --Douglas Hofstadter
