Maybe you're right and I'm confusing the terms. I guess
I'm trying to make a distinction between syllable-final
/w/ (that *does* exist) and syllable-final /v/ realized
as [w]. I mean, if you have two roots /tav/ and /taw/
and you use them as words, both are pronounced [taw],
but if you inflect them by adding /es/ you have [taves]
and [tawes] respectively. This is also an orthographic
problem. I'll probably have to use <u> for syllable-final
/v/ =3D [w], and <w> for syllable-final /w/.
