Hi Alpha,  Thanks for your message.  Sorry to be so tardy in replying.  Your message came during a period when our internet was down for about a month.  Firstly, I would point out that Keyscript is a written system, and like written English the 'spellings' are fixed.  That said, of course you can alter them in your writing if the alternative seems more appropriate to you.  Note though, that if the 'u' were omitted, 'know' & 'knew' would be written the same, which could cause confusion.  With words like 'knew', 'due', etc. pronounced by Americans, I have noticed that there is still a slight trace of the 'y'.  Maybe that's my imagination.  Or is it that they ever so slightly sound the 'w' sound on the end?  With 'often' and 'lot', I'd say that the American pronunciation of the 'o' is more an 'ah' sound but that much the same sound is also used for words that begin with 'au' or 'aw'.  That could be confusing.  I think American vowels are a bit dampened down compared with British English vowels.  I'd say, take your cues from the English spelling.  If the word starts with an 'o', don't write in the vowel in Keyscript, if it starts with 'au' or 'aw', write in the 'u' vowel.  Also note that the 'u' at the beginning of words is classified as a vowel, not a diphthong.  I have often heard 'often' pronounced with the 't', but it very often is not.  Perhaps, for a very frequently used word, writing in the full consonant (f) is perhaps more readable than 'q'.  I have also noticed, with many words, that in recent times some 'normalising' seems to be going on.  This includes a tendency to pronounce words as they are spelt.  Who would have thought that that the last syllable in 'hurricane' was 'can' not 'cane'?

Where is American pronunciation in all of this? I suppose, based on the rules of Keyscript, that “due” can be indicated as either ‘du’ ‘or ‘d’, depending on which pronunciation system you’re following. Is this correct? Similar pairs are “(k)new“—'nu’ or ‘n’—and “Sue”—‘ju’ or ‘j’, based on whether you end with "yoo" or "oo." “Issue” offers more than 2 potential pronunciations: 1. “issyoo,” which yields ‘ju’ 2. “ishyoo,” which coincidentally also yields ‘ju’ 3. “ishoo,” which yields ‘j’ I like to think that all of these are valid indications because Keyscript is phonetic, but perhaps that is just wishful thinking. Another issue, pun intended, is “often.” I pronounce the beginning diphthong as “aw” (think “lot” said by an American) and voice the ‘t’—“awften"—so I’d indicate “often” with ‘uqn’. Is this indication valid, given the overarching directive of phonetic indication in Keyscript?
