No, it has not, but there is no way out. Think of "minim" as written
in medieval manuscripts. It looks like this: |||||||||| (which is
also muium, if muium existed, or nununi, if nununi existed, or inunu, or...)

Think of "nennen" written in German. It looks like this:

/ / // / / / / // / /

It all comes back, as I wrote in my other post a few minutes ago,
to the segmentation of continuous text into its meaningful 
components. Still unsolved. Just like the VMS.
