Does anyone know what phonetic transcription Lambdin used to write his Copitc grammar?
I am clueless on how to pronounce the first syllable of "I ran" ([aypot]), or the word "to stand up" ([town]) etc.

I'd have to look, but the answer to your questions is "I" (like the English pronoun), and "town" (like the English word for a smaller city) except with the "o" pronounced like "aw" in "saw" instead of like "o" in "not."

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
