This may apply to other systems that can use a vi clone, not just
the BSD's. I am looking for an easy way of turning on/off my list of
homonyms that I am trying to set up for my ":abbreviation" list.
So, is there a failsafe way of
(1) including my ~150 :ab list in vim and turning it on
(2) turning the vim list off so that, What I-Type-Is-what-I-See [?]
In other words, dis-including my list of abbrevs.
I tried this with ten or fifteen words last summer in nvi, and it
worked very well with my ktts/festival suite. I was able, using my
Thinkpad as a testbed, have the computer talk clearly for me. A day
or two later I went into C mode for a day or three. After a few
hours of enjoying my hacking, I had to stop, remove the :ab words
from my ~/.nexrc and continue.
For anyone who hasn't read my ideas about this, I am attempting to
collect the 130+ most commonly used words and create "natural" or
"common sense" abbreviations for each word. Obv'ly, this would be
unnecessary for people who have no trouble typing accurately and
I have decided to use vim because is it widely used as the next step
in a text editor based on vi, and because it may allow me to simply
include a file in ~/vimrc; I'm not sure how far the improvements go.
