I don't know where this discussion is going;  but probaly down
a deep, dark hole. I am not sure how many languages there
are spoken round the world, but any attempt at writing code to
determine syllables or other linguistic 'bits' is going to end up
like Unicode (with which I am having 'buckets of fun' with right
mow), a fidge which leaves everybody disgruntled.
