Oops, and Dan of course! apologies Dan!

Although I understand there are some aesthetic sensibilities in RLC regading
the use of the letter 'i' but, so far I haven't seen much engagement from
the RLC community here with the exception of Mina and Neil. Is this so
important to them?

I must say, for my part, I tend to side with Eddie and Craig in this matter
and would prefer that, if we must use 'in' then, as Andrew suggests, 'yn' is
optional. I don't think there would be much likelyhood of there being
confusion between the adverbial particle and the preposition if both were
rendered 'yn'.

Although I run the risk of ruffling feathers, I do wonder if we are not
drifting off track with some of the items being discussed here.  Surely, the
idea was to concentrate upon addressing the faults recognised within SWF.  I
don't understand where the yn/in question comes into this.  Are we, in fact,
in danger of going a little too far?


One of the faults is that it has no principled distribution if <i> and <y>
except in stressed monosyllables and some finals. The other is that its
accommodation of RLC cosmetic preferences isn't so great.
