Thanks, you are right. Prior to the "sometimes y" complication, I had
been relying on the following rule to build out the algorithm:
[any consonant any [some vowel some consonant (m: m + 1)] any vowel]
This simplified rule was successful for generating the m value for
words-- based on my test data. I misquoted this rule in my email.
Thanks for the clarification.
