Um, Mike, let's get real. Linguists have had 80 years of opportunity
during which Doke's writings have been accessible and Khoisan phonology
has held at least some measure of interest, if for no other purpose than
as material used by phonetics teachers and authors of books that teach
phonetics who need to provide comprehensive coverage of phonetic symbols
for the world's speech sounds. And during that time, they have *not*
been using these symbols of Doke's for any purpose. A reprint of his
1926 book isn't going to suddenly change that.
