TPHEGTnext (next) Edit

The common words text and next end with "-xt". This ending is pronounced BGTSkts. Unfortunately, this inverted form is quite difficult to stroke. One might try to simplify by dropping the -t sound, giving BGSks. However, TEBGSteks is needed for the homonym Tex, and TPHEBGSnekshun is a brief for infection.

While you can access these words by applying the asterisk, text and next are additionally briefed with the following rule: use GT to represent the "xt" sound.

This rule applies to a few other words:

Oddly enough, there is one exception: 'twixt isn't stroked with GT because it conflicts with twitting (TWEUGTtwi[ingt]).
