Now, time to peek at your version to see how horribly I did.

D'fhann is presumably a typo for d'fhonn, which would be fine here with a different syntax (either a verbal noun phrase or a go-clause.

Specifically, is it the case that <bh> would only be pronounced in this verb if it's at the end of a word? That's my impression thus far.
If true, I assume this works for <mh> as well?
