I know some people hate talking about names, but can we talk about this
one?  Think of the kinds of events that a "transition event" might
properly refer to: pretty much any.  The essence of this transition is
that it is gradual rather than abrupt, correct?  How about calling it a
gradual-vowel-change-event?  Come to think of it, is this only for
vowels, or would it be appropriate to use it for, say, sh -> ss?

Second point: Gould writes, "The arrow also shows the length of the
transition between one vowel and the next..." (p. 452).  It sounds (and
the examples make it look) like something with a specific starting
moment and duration, more like a syllable of its own than like a hyphen,
as I see it.
