    I have shown (1) that they exist, (2) that they have specific usage.
    I have not shown them in a second document, though I have shown that
    Pullum & Ladusaw have quoted one word in Doke's orthography, spelling
    it with his peculiar use of diacritics. I would be happy to find a
    second use of the letters, but I consider the usefulness of being
    able to cite Doke in the original to be perfectly legitimate. Let's
    see what turns up in NYPL and LOC.
