With a little twist: chtvRt-ho-dyee-na To get back to the original subject, 'r' and 'l' can figure both as vowels and consonants in Czech. This would throw Sukhotin's algorithm off a bit, but probably not much, since they are far more frequently consonants. Czech has in fact quite a few more consonants than, say, English, but I don't know how it was written in the 15th C. Mnishowski (17th C) does in fact use at least one odd symbol: a gamma-like symbol which appears only at the beginning and end of the word, and represents 's'. Cheers, Rene
