Notes consolidated key strokes consolidated key strokes present progressive only, other similar transformations but no significant consensus Only "t" to "t" consolidation that didn't double up a consonant, probably because it is too awkward because four fifths of the word "ought" is a vowel Negatives (would not) are spelled with normal contractions (wouldn't), negatives unchanged (would not have) does not consistently become wouldnta or wouldn'tve "have" simplifies to "ve" spelling with an "of" pronunciation (retaining vowel placement from "have", then in final step the original vowel "a" in "have" is regained, dismissing the rest, final "a" pronunced "agenda") FOR ALL IN GROUP Interestingly follows the same pronunciation evolution as word+have
