Hi Mark,

nice to hear from you again. How is it going - did you translate any
some mor signs from the japanese bible project ?
Iīm sorry for you (and me ) that we didnīt continue - sooo much to do.

Well,- thanks for your interest in my "SW sound set " I like this term

Even if you canīt use these signs directly 1 : 1 for japanese sounds they
could be hopefully a basis for further developments for your purposes ??

I attached my SW.file anlaut.sw This file shows in the first part of
each row the symbol for the sound- next to the right you will find typical
german words that start with this sound
In Germany we use such a "Anlaut-Tabelle" to inform the hearing !!!!
children about the pronounciation of the letters -

Iīm interested in your feed-back

All the best

Stefan ;-)
