Re: VMs: Hamptonese
Has anyone tried any of Sukhotin's algorithms besides
the vowel/consonant classification? Specifically the
aggregation one he mentions? He coins a term for
"internal stability" which, to me, seems like it
should be inverted.
Pardon if I'm on an old subject that's been
investigated - I'm reading through the archives but
haven't got through 1992 yet (there was a lot of good
stuff in that year! doesn't seem like we've gotten far
