That was per Kyrmse's recommendation, which I thought you had said was
<<<Yes, but his proposal is for a phonemic _full_ mode as far as I can tell,
not a tehta mode. For tehta modes, it's probably better to rely on DTS 39,
where the "ai" in "praise" is spelled with e-tehta on top of anna (I think
this is what J. Mach Wust was referring to with regard to -i/-y), or maybe
DTS 37 ("lay"), though that sample strikes me as somewhat less phonemic (?).
As for -u/-w, I think we can only extrapolate from more or less orthographic
samples such as DTS 5 and 10 (the second greeting).
Hm Hoom, I'm sure J. Mach Wust will have something more to say...
Happy New Year!>>>
Apparently, Kyrmse doesn't share
the opinion that we have insufficient knowledge to devise a usable
phonemic tehtar mode for English, since he bothered to propose one.
