Now that the unpleasant Ian Paisley is back on stage, we'll probably be
getting clips of his speech from time to time.  I'm curious   to know how a
word like "now" as spoken by him would be represented in IPS.  It seems to
be a at least a tri- if not quadri -phthong. It makes me think of an has so many sound elements in it.

And I thought I was just writing fantasy when I depicted "Dr. Whom" as 
writing a paper titled "Sigmoid-F2 Tetraphthongs in Ailurin"!
