[Spellyans] SWF vowel inconsistencies

They could be written:

fruit [fru:t], lvk "luck" and Luik "Luke".

No diacritics; no problem.

That's <ui> for <û> and <v> for <ù>.

These are unacceptable to begin with. Frut is so spelt in the SWF, but 
according to the rules it should be pronounced fryt or frit. 
Similarly they recommend <ou> for [u] but if one were to write, say, louk for 'luck' it would
be pronounced lu:k, e.g. like Louk 'Luke'.
These problems arise because the SWF does not allow diacritics. KS writes frût [fru:t], lùk 'luck' and Lûk 'Luke'.
No problem.

    The vowels of the SWF and their sound are listed on p. 4 as:
  <eu> [9(:)] [e: E]
  <i> (~ <-ei>) [i(:)] [i(:) I] ~ [- at I] § 3.4
  <y> [I(:)] [i: I e: E]  
  <o> [O(:) 7] [o: O 7]  
  <oo> [o: u:] [u:]  
  <ou> [u(:)] [u: U]
  <u> [y(:)] [i(:) I] §  
  <oa>  [a:] [Q:](RLC only)
    
  Maybe it would be good to look at each of these especially as to how well each spelling measures up to the principles 1-4 of the SWF. ( allowing for Michaels suggested reading of number 3). I have change the IPA to xsampa. The first entry between [] is identified as RMC pronunciation and the second as RLC and "Tudor Cornish" pronunciations
