NO COMMINGLING.  No more “Long-A”, “B-Sound”, “Hard-C”, etc.  Letters do not make sounds.  Letters are not sounds.  Correlation is not causality.

V01-V15 are *new* codes for Vowel Sounds, with many possible spellings.  C16-C39 are *new* codes for Consonant Sounds, with relatively few spelling options.

Sound units are pragmatically organized in WordsAhead’s SOUND MAP.

“Must a name mean something?” Alice asked doubtfully.

“Of course it must,” Humpty Dumpty said with a short laugh:

“My name means the shape I am – and a good handsome shape it is, too.  With a name like yours, you might be any shape, almost.”
