    As there are only about five of these disambiguating diacritical
    marks in KS, the affected words could be respelt irregularly, and
    they could easily be learnt as exceptions.<br>
    <br>
    I suggest adding an 'a', as follows:<br>
    <br>
    eath (went) and eth (eight) and daa (good) and da (variant of
    'dha').<br>
    ke 'go' ~ kea 'hedge'; po 'if' ~ poa < boa subjunctive of bos; te
    'thou' ~ tea 'tea'.<br>
    <br>
    As for 'ù', I have been advocating 'v' instead for the last 5 years:
    cvssul, vnderstondya, arlvth, pvb.<br>
    Although this looks strange at first, it soon becomes natural. It is
    rarely ambiguous. It is easy to write.<br>
    <br>
    I am not against diacritical marks. I only want to minimise their
    use.<br>
    <br>
