Re: VMs: Strange pattern (key?)

Hi Rene,

and consonants. This did not happen with the VMs.
Instead, there it highlighted the well-known word
patterns, e.g. (q)ok(e)(e)(d)y.

Given that I suspect VMs words to be bimodal (ie, with a <qokeedy> mode and a non-<qokeedy> mode), my current effort is going into consiously constructing a strongly predictive Markov model for the <qokeedy> mode, and only then perhaps trying to see if there's another HMM hiding in the residue. Most people focus on <qokeedy> words, but the remainder may actually prove far more useful to us, you never know... :-)
