Truan is [truːən] (Nance trūan)

Buan (unattested, borrowed by Nance) is [byːan]~[biːən]. This rhymes  
with <bian>! Unless it would be read [biʊən] as <buwan>, <bewan>,  
<bywan>. But it's not used in RLC, which uses <bewek> and <qwyck>.

In KS we can write <trûan> and <buan>. <ua> like <ia> is a quasi- 
diphthong, it seems. Or do we classify it as a proper diphthong?
