GL5 Syllabic Contraction
Many English words continue to carry extra phonemic baggage that contributes no essential additional connotative value. Removal of such vestigual phonemes, when it results in no imposed ambiguity, can achieve very significant degrees of compression.
GL5 will push this concept to the limit. First of all, English uses more vowels than it need. Often the shortest distance between two consonants is simply provided by the consonants alone. For example, the use of a leading vowel before nasal consonants is frequently unnecessary. Include rendered nklwd is just as effective as with the i : inklwd. This would produce such words as:
vowel sounds are specially favord for limination. Consider these xamples:
Words beginning with vowels are notable candidates for syllabic contraction. For zample, EXACT can be shortened to ZAKT with not loss of meaning and the resultant compact model is not confused with any other existing word.
Other EX- words include:
Other vowel initiated words that are suspect:
Many negative prefixes continue to be employed in numerous words where the negation is no longer conoted. For example, IN- in inflammable does not indicate a lack of combustability. DIS- in discovery, IR- in irradiate are also positive terms. Therefore...
The basic principal in syllabic compression is to reduce unnecessary syllables to the point just short of ambiguity. For example, "discovery" could actually be reduced to simply skuv, because there is no other existing English word that would be confused with it. Whereas, "announce" cannot be reduced any further than n6ns, because n6n ("noun") already exists as a valid English word.
