Discussion of "iy'y"

Comment #1: Possible problem
Curtis W Franks (Tue Jun 30 20:22:08 2015)

I was thinking about this exact option the other day. I was not sure that
it is best. The presence of the glide seems to make me think that the
letteral should reflect that glide (for example, this word would me IPA /j/
or any transcription thereof). I know that such things can be supported via
.iy'ybu, but Lojban has /j/ and representing it (as its own letteral)
might be of value to the community eventually, in which case this word
should be reserved for that usage.

Note: /w/ would likewise get .uy'y .



What I actually came up with was to redefine .y'y to be the letteral 'y'
and invent a longer name (like denpa bu or slaka bu) for the letteral
''' (apostrophe).

The semivowels are already defined as iy and uy
