      Not to mention its non-use of _dd, ff, f_ *modo Cambrico*!

      Good thing, IMO. Imagine _Ffladrif_ and _Emun Mwyl_!

      (Tho I of course prefer _Fladriv_, which should shock noone,
      since JRRT says he choose the -f /v/ spelling because final
      -v is unknown in English spelling, as if the spelling of
      other languages actually need being dictated by such consideration.
      He considered not distinguishing _d_ and _dh_ /ð/ for the same
      reason, which he thankfully didn't do after all!
