      Måns Björkman deithant:

      Letter #118 (in "very happy")
      shape: 'breve'
      transcription: <y>
      sound: [i]
      LotR title-page (in "by")
      shape: V
      transcription: <y>
      sound: [ai]

      Please allow me to add one more:
      LotR title-page (in "history")
      shape: V
      transcription: <y>
      sound: [i]

      So I agree that this tehta (and its variants) is a concession to
      orthography as it represents a written vocalic 'y' regardless of the
      vowel sound in the spoken word.

      Cuio mae, Danny.
