However, in a word like 'quick', there would be a symbol for /k/ with diacritics for over it adding the /w/ sound, making it /kw/. There would then be a separate symbol for the /ih/ vowel with one accent over it and the final symbol for /k/. Does that make sense?
Yes, that is what I imagined it was. It is an alphabet, not an abugida or an abjad.
