I would be very curious to know how the name for [aue] can be effectively
pronounced, when it combines all these consonnants !
Now what does the apostrophe modify, the following vowel or the preceding
consonnant or click ? Isn't there a better English name for it, instead of
this pseudo-IPA phonetic local name?
