En réponse à Joe <[log in to unmask]>: > > > Ok, another question, how about the glottal stop? /h|/? > > So, 'it's' would be /i-h|s/ > Rather [Ih|s] AFAIK (do you really have IPA barred-i there?). But you point out a small inconsistency I had here. Indeed, /h|/ is a perfectly valid way to describe the glottal stop, but I usually thought I would take /?/ instead. But doing as you do frees another non-letter character for diacritic use, and you can always use the modularity of C-IPA to assign ? to the glottal stop if you want and it doesn't create any ambiguity. As for what use ? could have as a diacritic, there are quite a few possible :)) . But I had some concern that C- IPA used the same diacritic for implosives and ejectives (the diacritic is /) while IPA didn't. In this case ? would come in handy as the diacritic for ejectives (the idea of "stop + glottal stop" is a nice mnemonic for those who already know IPA) and / could be used only for implosives. Thanks! You helped me get rid of a small inconsistency here :) . Christophe. http://rainbow.conlang.free.fr Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
