Well, sorry, this is part of my text-to-speech stuff and I admit
to be stuck in C. [Heart-throb.]
It was late last August when we were all sweltering and I
mentioned having had a file of 130 :abbrvs that fit vi.
Somebody said that he would like to see my list and a search
couldn't find it. I did find lists of the top-N most frequently
used words in English, but the rest of it was gone.
I Spent a few hours today re-creating the abbreviations as they
were back in the late 90's. Back then I was interested in
saving my keystrokes. So that I might type: "i wll kEp trak v m
hrs evry wk." and vi would translate that to "I will keep track
of my hours every week." Overall, tests found that clever
abrevs would save around 31% if you learns ~130 words.
Now my goal is to output words that festival and ktts will turn
into sounds. This will let me use homonyms, since the output
will be spoken rather than read. So "thr taking thr stuf ovr
the." would translate to: "They're taking their stuf over
Anybody interested in this, please take it Off-Line, okay.
And thax for yer regex help :-)
