Thank you Dan - precisely why comparisons with other languages can be quite pertinent!

That's right Ray, North Frisian orthography has a system or recommended graphs how to write the sounds and the various NF dialects apply this system to write their own dialect, so differences appear only where they are phonologically relevant. The NF dialects are partially quite divergent on all linguistic levels, so much more difficult to squeeze into one 'unified' system than Cornish would be.
