    Glad I could be of help... I know you protest EVA, but the one benefit
of it is that everyone can understand which characters you are referring
to.. I follow that your G gallows are either one of the f/p gallows, and
your H must be either of the t/k gallows -- But I can't guess what a K
gallows is then...

    I also have to ask - even though they are very rare -- what of split
gallows? EVA doesn't handle them well either - as they aren't easy to
transliterated or describe as a separate entity because they make long
strides over several characters...

    We also have the gallows populating stand-alone labels -- assumption
notwithstanding that they are labels. The vast majority of stand-alone
'words' begin with 'o' and a gallows.
