Just for posterity's sake, I knew this. I was just trying to keep the
original post short. Okrand said at Stellarcon 17 that having (t and D) in
the same language instead of (T and D) inclusive-or (t and d) was highly
unusual in human languages and made pronunciation of certain consonant
combinations difficult. I thought it would be enough to simply refer to (t
and D), but I guess I forgot who I was talking to...
