However one could increase the number by making them location-sensitive. For example EVA <y> could mean different things if it is written at the beginning or the end of a word.

Cappelli gives examples of abbreviations like that, with multiple meanings: for example, the symbol that looks like "9" can mean "con", "com", "cum", "cun", as in:

   9cedo  =  concedo
   9pleui  =  complevi
   cir9  =  circum

Since, for example, "com" or "con" is common at the beginning of Latin words but not at the end, and vice versa for "cum", it has the effect of meaning different things in different places.
