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.
