And that's the only reason that I resurrected the issue--because I think we're
emerging from a set of constraints that have just recently been removed, and
it's hard to say which way things are going to go. As far as noting the
comparative data in a dictionary is concerned, my perspective is that
gobbledygook in transcription is still gobbledygook. If a person doesn't know
Ethiopic, an Ethiopic citation is not going to be terribly useful, whether
it's transcribed or not.
