I tried to memorize them again. See If I can.
ui in Donald Duck’s nephews. Except they are not Donald Duck’s nephews. The are hui-us, cui-us, huic (one syllable), cui, hui.
and I think you’ll be interested to know, that for syllabelization (or what it’s called), the following pairs of consonants count as one:
th, ph, ch (although each sounds like two consonants).
Stop and liquid (?) (pl, cr, the sort).
qu – I’m a little confused about this one, I’ll check again.
X, on the other hand, counts as two consonants when determining the length of the syllable. The following pairs of vowels are diphthongs:
oi (I would have thought they were all sighs in Yiddish, but no)
ui, but only in the following words: huius, cuius, huic, cui, hui. Anyone else visualizes the cartoon: “The adventures of huius, cuius, huic, cui and hui in ancient Rome”?
Which is just what you think it is, and when I’ve read it, I’ll mark this goal “done”. See you around 2008.
Latin and everything dead and ancient. Maybe because it’s long gone and remote and, in Suzanne Vega terms, “Last Year’s Trouble”. I have the book (Wheelock’s), now I need to find the time (somewhere between sewing, writing, kids not sleeping, and ah, yes, the job thing).
