I am looking for parsers and stemmers for Japanese and research into
them. A LINGUIST archive search has not shown anything recent. I will
post a summary if there is interest. Thank you.

Message 2: Q: IPA symbols and hieroglyphics

Subject: Q: IPA symbols and hieroglyphics



I am working on a translation of a French handbook on 
hieroglyphics, and some of the IPA used has puzzled me. 

(1) a superscripted c is a long mid-vowel (like 3:) ?
(2) an h or k with a single dark dot beneath (described 
as "emphatic")?
 
(3) this book also uses the 'y' character for the palatal approx
 /j/. I have seen this before. Is there a school of thought 
that prefers this transcription?
 
If you are familiar with these symbols, please e-mail me 
at hbonikowskiyahoo.com. I appreciate your help.
 
Best,
