Re: VMs: VMS EVA ii combinations

You will also notice that word transitions repeat so that the in of aiin
might often link to s at the start of the next word. It would be interesting
to do a count of word transition patterns both with the last pair in the
first word with the first letter of the next and visa versa. There should
only be a relatively small number of these and not hundreds.

Also I would modify your table to have pairs of EVA characters across the
top and single characters down the rows. It would be very revealing. Also
this would give precisely the table of glyph triplet linkages that I have
been talking about. The only thing missing would be word start and
termination markers.
