Absolutely, but what I'm getting at is that the alphabet has to  
contain alternatives for M and N (i.e. BM and DN) to be complete.

By the way, Andrew and I came across an annoying problem with the SWF  
which has commol but comolen.  Surely the collective noun is in error  
as the word does not preocclude.  If not, then we have an unnecessary  
complication for learners (why double M in one but not the other?).  I  
thought it was agreed that geminates would only occur in stressed  
syllables where it is known that preocclusion applies, e.g. dhymm/ 
dhybm; omma/obma.
