‘Keepsake’ in Simplified

Hi folks-
I’m wondering how I would write the word keepsake in Simplified.
If I use a left-S, as in keeps, then the sake part of the word doesn’t follow the general rules about circles being formed on the outside of angles.
But if I use a comma-S, as in the word sake on its own, then it blends into the P and isn’t clear.
In the Anniversary dictionary it is just spelt as two totally separate, disjoined words, but I’m not sure that helps clarify matters either because I can’t find a relevant rule in the Anniversary manual!
Can anyone help?
Thanks!

  1. k-p-right s-a-k

    The DJS dictionary is the first one that added "keepsake" as a word.

    Examples of blended p with s are uncommon. If you want to make a distinction between p-right s-a-k and p-a-k, you may want to slant the right s to the right a little before writing the a.

  2. I thought the /p-right s/ was very awkward, too, but it helped me to think of it as the same shape as /b-f/, but on the next smaller scale.

    In 'keepsake' it's a little stranger feeling the with the /k-p/ already blended.
