Abstract : This poster compares the representational logic and phonological principles behind the doubling of consonants in Orrm-s manuscript and in Thomas Sheridan-s -system for respelling-. In the Orrmulum, graphic geminates do not represent phonological geminates, but act, in certain contexts, as a means -to reflect-project a short vowel for the vowel graph that immediately precedes- Anderson & Britton 1997:300, unambiguously fulfilling a -diacritic function- Murray 1995:127. Similarly, Sheridan makes use of ostensibly ambisyllabic consonants in his transcriptions in a manner that is clearly not linearly segmental Pouillon & Ballier 2013. In both cases, information is given about the preceding vowel, namely, that it is short; see for instance Orrm-s and Sheridan-s
