From Lesson 1:
http://plover.stenoknight.com/2010/07/t ... aphic.html
There is this:
O - as in got or knoll (it's 'o' in got, and 'oh' in knoll)
But later, there is this:
OE - as in boat or grown
It appears, that it's an OE in knoll, and not an O. This point is consistent

DanLanglois wrote:Fine. Example: Zoo: ZAO
Okay. although, ZAO is not in the dictionary as 'zoo'. That would be STPSKWAO. It's not mapped.
I'll let it go..
DanLanglois wrote:Then, I guess my only remaining question is about E - as in let, pert, or defy.
Specifically, 'pert'. The 'pert' example is a bit of a disturbing one, because 'ur' is a very common sound, early, bird, stirring.
DanLanglois wrote:I'm sorely tempted here, to suggest 'UR', for all these cases where the stroke is 'EUR'. Because,
ur is the sound anyways. And also, UR could be in 'early'. That is, 'ER' can be er and one can
use UR for 'ear' as in 'early'.
The 'r' is omitted, here. I don't get it. There's even an EU for 'i', in these
examples, then why not 'KAEURFL'.

DanLanglois wrote:BTW, it turns out that -PL is 'M'. Except, that -PL is not 'M'.
I mean, it is, according to lesson 2: http://plover.stenoknight.com/2010/08/s ... n-two.html.
However, in dict.json, I see this:
DanLanglois wrote:So okay, leaving that aside, under some circumstances, -PL is 'M'. But, that's okay.
So I'm still plumping for this:
DanLanglois wrote:I'd kind of inferred, that one uses one's right hand for consonants that don't begin a syllable.
Consonants, that come before a vowel. Yet, the right side does not include a complete alphabet.
What is it missing? If I don't know, then nobody does (else, I could look it up somewhere).
DanLanglois wrote:In addition, y tends to be, I notice, represented as 'i', phonetically, in the dictionary.
also, v tends to be represented as 'f', again phonetically, in the dictionary.
DanLanglois wrote:This is some thinking out loud, I don't know what it may have been like for the former beginners--I feel, that if I'm dismissing the entire dictionary as useless, tending towards counterproductive, then maybe I'm doing something wrong?
DanLanglois wrote:What's the way to stroke 'apple', which would be logical for me to stroke hundreds of other words
according to the same principles?

DanLanglois wrote:Then, how to stroke it phonetically? I mean, assume that it's the only word in the dictionary, there are no conflicts, what are the principles?
