I was stuck in lesson 20 in the Simplified Manual. In the 2nd edition it is p88 #179 about a United Credit Bureau. I was going to ask for help with an outline I couldn’t decipher, last night or today.
I read the sentence (second in para) as: Before the credit manager of a store passes on any credit application he usually gets in ??? with the local branch of the United Credit Bureau.
The stroke looked like t-chay, and I kept thinking, “to which” or “at which.” While writing the lesson — twice — I still didn’t get it. While typing this post, I got it: “touch.”
Funny how that works! 🙂 I guess this is from the rule of omitting ‘u’ before a straight downstroke?
At any rate it is a useful learning experience for me, and I decided to share it with the group.
