It is my understanding that in Simplified, if you want to add –ed to a word whose root outline does not include a stroke for the final consonant sound of the root word, the added t or d stroke is disjoined, and that one of the changes made in going from Simplified to Diamond Jubilee was writing that t or d stroke joined to the root outline even if there was no stroke for the final consonant sound of the root word. Likewise for –r. My question is, did this change necessitate other changes needed to make this change viable? (Or was it simply judged that people could read such outlines with the t, d, or r attached just fine.) It seems to me that this change by itself would speed up the writing but make the reading of the resulting shorthand more difficult.
