A Spot of 'A' Bother

So, reading back through my notes, and listening to files, it's become apparent that I've been transcribing two different sounds with the same symbol. I've been using 'a' for the vowel sounds similar to those in 'rang' and 'rung'. this is not surprising, I'm not a geat phonologist - actually, I'm not really a good syntactician, or morphologist, or semanticist really.

Not sure how to rectify it in the transcriptions I've already done, or in the transcription program I use where there's no access to fancy fonts, but I guess recognising the mistake is the first step...

    Dear Lauren,
    I think you are doing a marvellous job from reading your blog! I guess you have already thought of this but if you don't have the fancy fonts, how about underlining or colour coding or having some other symbol like @ to substitute for one of the sounds until you can get a fancy font.
