      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...

      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.

      <<<Where? I'm just curious. All I could find where phonemic and orthographic
