comment What is a gender-neutral alternative to the expression “man-days”?
@horatio you're right in that I could have been abit clearer. My answer is that an alternative isn't necessary and I don't believe there to be one in popular use.

comment Are there any variations on nouns ending with an -al suffix?
Are you suggesting I post this in the linguistics forum - or just mulling over some linguistics? I did consider posting it there, but I thought it might be too localised to English.

comment What words are similar in meaning to “monosyllabic” or “disyllabic”, but refer to the letters and not the sounds?
Yes I think graph or grapheme is suitable for one character. If you want two characters that appear together in the orthography then you could call it a digraph (such as <ll> in Welsh. You could always use something like "... consisting of two orthographical characters" etc.
