Does anyone know the recommended form for words such as these under 1916 rules?:
My guess is “…f [disjoined t]” in each case, because of the -f ending rule, and the disjoined t rule for past-tense of abbreviated words, but I can’t find any rules or any instances of the combination with “-rd”.
“Confered” may be an exception because the root is normally spelled out to differentiate it from the wordsign “confiden(t/ce)”; but then I guess “kf [disjoined t]” wouldn’t be confused.
Also, I can’t seem to find “offer” in the 1916 dictionary or manual at all. Is it in fact “o-f”?
Thanks in advance.
