Re: [folkspraak] A vowel-selection algorithm
- I'm glad you like it. As you point out, it's quite striking how
closely the results conforms to the forms you created intuitively.
Assuming everyone has Excel, I'd like to post a spreadsheet that can
do the calculations automatically, once I create a user-friendly
version of the sheet I have now.
I'd also post a explanation of the manual method (which is not
terrible difficult to learn - I've been scribbling down little vowel
tables everywhere over the last few days).
The same logic can be used to standardise consonants. It's much
simpler, of course: typically you have a fairly stark choice between
a few variants (e.g., B, V, P, F), not the infinite number of
possible blends you get on the vowel side.
