In Simplified: Is there a pattern for which stroke determines the s used between two strokes? The way decision is written would suggest that a sh, ch, or j wins out against a preceding d or t. But that hypothesis is torn asunder by disjoin. The way design is written would suggest that a d or t wins out against a following n or m. To my dismay, however, the way the word dismay is written would suggest otherwise. I have one more example to discuss. The way the word discuss is written would suggest that a d or t takes precedence over a following k or g. But then along comes desecrate!
