I've removed a few thousand misstrokes I think from the main dictionary for myself where the commit history mostly shows why I felt the stroke was off: https://github.com/dimonster/plover-dictionaries/commits/master/dictionaries/dict.json

-"PHOPLTS": "endophthalmitis",

I think the average user is going to need this stroke to be the single-stroke version of “monuments” more often than “endophthalmitis”. If need be, that can be asterisked.

@nimble0 nimble0 commented Jun 9, 2019

Remove:
TEFD: testified,
T*EFD: tested
Because the asterisk is the other way around on the base words:
TEF: test,
T*EF: testify

Conflicts with I'd deal.

Could delete as well, but doesn't really matter:
"AOEUD/TKAOEL/SA*EUGS": "idealization"

Suggestions to add to the dictionary:
SAOK for sook (aka a crybaby)
SM*IK for schmick (aka fancy/new/well-maintained)
YAOUS for youse
FRIK for frick (alternative version of frig/frigging)
There may be better briefs for these words - these are just suggestions.

Please add:

  • "A/T*EPLT": "attempt" (there are existing A/TEPLT and A/TEFRPT)
  • "A/TOERPB": "attorney" (there is only existing TOERN)
  • "PHROES/EUF": "plosive" (currently only PHROES/*EUF is defined, and both EUF and *EUF are defined as {^ive})
  • "AOE/TPORT": "effort" (currently mapped to efort, and AOE is usually used for {e^})
  • "TPABG/TRAOEUS": "factorise" ('fac/trise', currently produces "FAQ tries" while 'fac/trize' produces "factorize")
  • "PRES/KWREPBT": "prescient" (in the Cambridge English Dictionary it's pronounced with /s/ not /ʃ/)
  • "ROEM/ANS": "romance" (use the suffix stroke "ance")
  • "A/SAOEU/KHREUBG": "acyclic" (currently conflict with "A/SAOEU": "acai"`)

And change one of the two entries AOEULD/AOEULDZ (currently mapped to "island" and "eyelids" respectively) to be consistent.

AOEUD EPL "idem" collides with sentences like "I'd embarrass myself," or "I'd employ you!" and etc. I'm not really if there's any good solution for this since idem is seemingly a word. Maybe redefine as "AOEUD *EPL"?

Mostly things that seem obvious/correct to me but did not work right in my copy of main.json.

At some point the outline "RE/HRAOEFD" was swapped from "relieved" to "released". Adjacent entries like "relieves" and "releases" are inconsistent:

"RE/HRAO*EF": "relieve",
"RE/HRAO*EF/ER": "reliever",
"RE/HRAO*EFD": "relieved",
"RE/HRAO*EFG": "releasing",
"RE/HRAO*EFR": "reliever",
"RE/HRAO*EFS": "releases",
"RE/HRAOEF": "relief",
"RE/HRAOEF/*ER": "reliever",
"RE/HRAOEF/-D": "relieved",
"RE/HRAOEF/-S": "relieves",
"RE/HRAOEFD": "released",
"RE/HRAOEFG": "relieving",
"RE/HRAOEFR": "reliever",
"RE/HRAOEFS": "relieves",
"RE/HRAOES": "release",

"RE/HRAOES/-S": "releases",

A few more, don't think these have been done:

"AOEU/SA": "ISA",
"PWHRAOEUPBLG": "oblige",
"STOEURBG": "historic",

Don't know if this is so obvious/correct, but since we have TKPHEUPB for "admin", it makes sense to me to add

"TKPHEUPBT": "administrate",

R*EFLT maps to "revaluate," but I think the intention was for R*EFLT to map to "reevaluate."

+"KAUN/TPEFD": "confessed",

This currently translates to "coneffectived".

@didoesdigital didoesdigital commented Feb 1, 2020

The dictionary has "SKHRAOUD": "exclude", and "SKHRAOUD/-D": "secluded",.

If you learn SKHRAOUD for exclude, you might reasonably expect SKHRAOUD/-D to be "excluded".

Let's change the entry to "SKHRAOUD/-D": "excluded",.

Given these entries:

"STKAOE": "disease",
"STKAOED": "disease",
"STKAOEF": "deceive",
"STKAOEFD": "deceived",

"STKAOED": "disease", is probably meant to be "STKAOED": "diseased", but is missing the trailing "d".

"collectable" and "collectible" (and their pluralised versions) both appear to be valid words [source].

Plover includes these suffix strokes:

"-BL": "{^able}",
"EUBL": "{^ible}",

Plover's dictionary includes:

"KHREBGT/-BL": "collectible",
"KOL/HREBGT/-BL": "collectible",

These dictionary entries don't match the suffix entries.

I propose removing these entries:

-"KHREBGT/-BL": "collectible",
-"KHREBGT/-BL": "collectible",

… and adding these entries:

"KHREBGT/-BL": "collectable",
"KHREBGT/EUBL": "collectible",
"KOL/HREBGT/-BL": "collectable",
"KOL/HREBGT/EUBL": "collectible",

I think "THA/AOUGS": "that use" should be removed. THA/AOUGS should output "that using" ("It was estimated that using contract workers could save the company thousands of dollars").

@rabbitgrowth rabbitgrowth commented Jun 28, 2020

"TAEUPBD": "tained" is a bit odd. Since TAEUPB is "contain", one would expect TAEUPBD to be "contained". "tained" isn't even a word, is it?

@joezeng
Copy link

@joezeng joezeng commented Jun 28, 2020

I think the TAEUPBD entry is specifically for people who write KAUN/TAEUPBD for "contained", but I agree that it's weird to have as its own entry here rather than a two-stroke entry for the whole word.

@rabbitgrowth rabbitgrowth commented Jul 22, 2020

"culd" is not a word (at least not in modern English - apparently it's an obsolete form of "could"), so I propose removing "KULD": "culd" to make way for "culled".

Maybe:

  • "A/KUFPL": "accustom". Currently does acustom.
  • "KARS/RAL": "carceral", alternatively KAR/SERL, KAR/SER/AL. I can't find an entry in the dictionary for this.
  • "AO*URP/KWRAPB": "European" since AO*URP is Europe
  • "TKAET/PWAEUS": "database", currently mapped to data base

  • "KRAEUZ/S*EU/*": "craziness" is impossible to stroke (the star by itself always undoes) and doesn't make sense anyway, so should probably be removed
  • "HOEPL/SEUBG/TP-PL": "homesick." should be removed, as it breaks capitalization (and HOEPL/SEUBG doesn't even map to homesick)
  • "TKU/PWAOEU": "Dubai" is questionable, as it collides with "did you buy"
  • "PHET/TPOER": "no" lol wtf?
