Then forgive me, Michael, for I have sinned. I just sent in to Mark a
Deseret Alphabet transcription that uses [i]. In my defense, I tend to
find short, unstressesd vowels hard to tell apart in many English
words. I really don't know what vowel I use in "universe." And the DA
doesn't have a true schwa symbol, anyway.
