My wife is the the linguistics expert round here (and she's Arab). I'm the
arabic grammar/tajweed guy (and I'm English).
So the discussions using English linguistic terms is a closed book to me (I
confess). But I don't see the need for them when encoding something designed
to represent the arabic concepts that I do know.
