Re: VMs: Abbreviationes
Your are right. It requires purchase of 2 CDs. This study is not for me
so I did not check the price. Stolfi has a chart of word pair sequences
for VMS using a fairly liberal substitution of single letters for EVA
letter series. Also a chart from an English document for comparison.
Sorry, I did not record the page URL. I think the real difference will
show when three- and four-word series are factored in. I also think the
full EVA alphabet should be used except the rare letters. Also, the iin,
iiin might best be given a single letter value. Whoever does the work is
the best judge of that. Whoever proposes to do the work is the best
judge of whether it might be worthwhile.
Since we do not *know* what should be consolidated or what a
consolidated pair or triplet might represent I really do not see any
need for guessing. Recently, the point was made that the definite
article could be part of the following word (Stolfi). Many abbreviations
may have been used. If we quantify what we have first we can better know
what we are doing with later modifications.

I saw this a while back. Doesn't it require some sort
p.s. I haven't forgotten about the word collocation
run. Just the usual lots of things going on....
