How do I typeset the short i vowel, as in this Turkish word, kızların?

I was able to typeset it simply by using utf8 and copying and pasting from your question.

Thanks! I had tried copy & paste before, but without the utf8 command. – Frank Mar 9 '11 at 8:52

And, if UTF-8 is unavailable, isn't this just what the \i command produces?

Yes, both utf8 and \i look identical on my system. (Note that utf8 isn't always the same as UTF-8, but don't ask me why and how) – Martin Scharrer Mar 9 '11 at 9:18
