If you need to make a point about what you think the actual
pronunciation was, use square brackets (). (I am speaking as a

>I don't think this is a matter of transcription/encoding as much as of
the actual choice of the reconstructed phonemes. For reasons I stated
before, I think classical "voiced aspirated" stops (series III) were
actually *plain* voiced, so there's no point in perpetuating their
corresponding symbols. IMHO, there're two possible choices for the PIE
stop system, depending on if one includes glottalics or not:
series I - voiceless (phonologically aspirated) / voiceless aspirated
series II - glottalic / (unaspirated) voiceless
series III - voiced
The first system is the one reconstructed for Proto-Kartvelian and the
second one for Proto-Altaic. The latter has the advantage as being more
flexible as regarding the outcome of earlier glottalics, variable among
