I've found "Chlewey" to be unique enough (look at Altavista or something)... but I have some problems trying to use it in many languages. Of course I've sketched languages where /'xlju:i/ is posible, but they would most probably not be writen, nor romanized as "chlewey"... Actually the conection orthography-pronunciation of "Chlewey" is quite ood and had elements of English (one of the most ood languages in the conection orthography-pronunciation) mixed with... German?... Well... mayby some day I would sketch a language where the natural pronunciation fo "chlewey" would be /'xlju:i/... let's say: {ch}=/x/, {l}=/l/, {ew}=/ju:/, {ey}=/i/, accent either on first syllabe or on second last syllabe. -- Carlos Eugenio Thompson Pinzsn ITEC-Telecom, Colombia cthompso@alpha.telecom-co.net http://alpha.telecom-co.net/~cthompso/
