Thanks--I also cannot make the low back symbol on e-mail. (I suppose I
could import it from my SIL set? But I don't know how!) In any case, I
called it 'script a.' I learned something from your comment though: I
didn't realize the Southern monophthong 'I' is [a] and not the low back
'script a'! I'll listen more carefully next time ([tam], right?)!
