And this is particularly true of Welsh NG (one of Marion's
examples). While NG is usually considered a single letter in Welsh
(pronounced /ŋ/), there are a few words ('dangos' and 'Bangor' are
the usual examples) in which it's considered two letters (pronounced /
ŋg/) and sorted as such in dictionaries. How should a regexp parser
deal with this? I don't know.
