Re: Sukhotin's Algorithm

Hi, Dennis: in Ukrainian the occurences of sequences of consonants without
vowels between them seem to about as common as in Russian. Examples:
skladniy, zdrignuty, sklepinnya, etc. Ukrainian has also many words borrowed
from Polish, which is not the case with Russian.  PS: Just for fun: There is
only one word in Russian that has in it three e in a row: Dlinnosheee
(meaning a creature with a long neck).
