Unit 16

Blended Consonants

     133.  When two straight lines for an obtuse or blunt angle, the natural tendency of the hand is to slur the angle and allow the lines to form a curve, thus:

nt, nd, mt, and md blends

     134.  The -nt blend is an upward curve, corresponding in length to the sign for f; the -mt, -md blend is an upward curve, corresponding in length to v.  The n or m governs the length of the curve; the curve containing m naturally is longer.  At the beginning of words, short e and short i are omitted before these blends, as in entry, empty, induce, etc.
