[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Pull Request #981 Add Tolkien’s Elvish languages
By lucaswerkmeister:

You can define new phoneme as sequence of two existing ones and assign IPA name to it, if necessary. See more at Phoneme tables.

Thanks, but how do I define a sequence of two phonemes? I couldn’t figure it out. I tried two CALLs now –

– but it just sounds identical to h, I don’t hear any trace of the R. (Two import_phonemes gives a build error.)
